This is another one from my other half. If you have a piano which has been scrapped because it is totally beyond repair you can make chess pieces from the keys. Anyone got any more useful recycling tips for a piano which has played its last note?

Put it in his shed for a workbench or a bed

oh lol, very, very tempting! However, the piano is actually my childhood piano which I still play and he is not allowed to do anything with it! He is laughing and saying if he got a bed in the shed he would never come out again!

Then I would leave it where it is and cotinue to try not to laugh to much when he stubs his toes. No beds in the shed then

Until we move there is not really any other wall it will fit, but I have moved several times and I know how to look after the piano. No, no bed in the shed, I would like to have my atavar created this side of Christmas lol.

A planter, huh? Well yes, that is actually a very, very good idea. Actually I know you are a very clever lady, and smart answers do not surprise me one little bit!

turn on side, put strings in and make into a harp Open the back up and make a hidden book shelf Paint it in zany colours and hide your stereo system in it Hide expensive stolen pictures in the back Open the bottom part and use as a shoe store put hooks on the ends for your coats use it to lean your flat screen tv against make into a DVD and video cupboard put a plastic screen in to protect your fave flower arrangements get a family of mice to live in it and make nice noises use as a trailer for your car make a giant bird house for on your garden tree use as a sidecar for your motorbike make into an interesting coffin waterproof and use as a canoe lay down and make into cat-proof sand pit make into a really phat grandfather clock I think we'd better stop beofe we get silly, lol we like these, as you canguess Shrek helped,ha-ha

The Scary Fairy and Shrek win, we are funny aren't we? The imagination level in my lounge is a bit odd at the best of times. Thank-you so much for giving me your best response! One las t one get some miniature Zebras and use the keys as camoflage, lol.

well, it was a bit soon to give the best response, but I seriously can not see anyone topping that! Yes, mini zebras, lol. Would give the mice some company, wouldn't it? Certainly gave us a huge laugh and Ant is under strict instructions he is NOT going to make the piano into a DVD and videu cupboard with multi colour paint job. Not at all lol.
