A Doll House Piano

My daughter LOVES music of all "varieties and flavors" (something she gets from her daddy!). A couple weeks ago she ask me to print her some instruments off so she could make her dollhouse people play and sing.  
(Here they are all lined up with their guitars, banjos, mandolins, and a bass!)
Last week she got the bright idea that she wanted a piano for the dollhouse people. 
The above creation was what she "dreamed up" with a little help from mommy along the way....mostly her ideas though! 
Would you believe that she made that piano with only:
1) a block of wood leftover from building the deck
2) some black paint
3) some black beads
4) paper
Just goes to show that "where there's a will there's a way!"
We made the "piano bench" from an old rubber stamp block (painted black) and padded the top with a scrap of material and some cotton batting.  Oh, and we added beads to the bottom to make it sit up a bit higher. 
Of course, what's a piano w/out music.  
My daughter had me shrink some music down and print it off so she could have a song book for the piano.
Oh and the lamp on top -- made from a button, beads, and a scrap of paper.
