I think this is the sweetest before and after story to ever grace Better After. This old piano was very loved for many years, handed down from mother to daughter, played upon by children and grandchildren. Then one tragic day the house flooded. The piano was destroyed.
Hoping there was some chance it could be saved, the piano was delivered to Whitey. She and her husband tore it apart (as lovingly as possible, I’m sure) and used the parts to create a trunk for her mother and two lamps for her aunt. Read more about it on her blog, Skunk Hollow.
