Turn a broken piano into a hidden workbench.
We've all heard of DIY projects that repurpose old items laying around the house. Well, the reality is you can repurpose ANYTHING -- including broken items.
None of us likes breaking something. Whether the item was brand new and didn't deserve it or very old and had it coming -- it's something you initially think you now have to throw out. Not necessarily.
A man's trash is another man's treasure. Or in this situation: a man's trash can become that man's treasure.
