An antique child’s grand piano was salvaged from an old barn and brought back to life. Watch as the restorer takes excellent care in polishing up each piece one at a time.

Testing each key carefully, you can hear the ring of the beautiful music it used to play. He inserts the inside of the grand piano into the outer shell and begins to work on the keys.

He paints each block white, gently placing black stickers on them to represent the black keys. He puts each key into place. For the final touch, he inserts the music stand on top.
