Piano Wall.

We were recently given a piano.
Given.
As in free.

Now that might scare some people and they may assume it was a really nasty, ugly, giant beast of a piano.
This one is actually a rather nice little spinet.
Owned for 10 years (purchased new) and never played.
When the owner heard Nate and I both play, he insisted we take it at put it to good use.
Such a generous offer and gladly accepted.
That means my piano fund can now go toward something else!
After a tuning session and some tension repairs.
Good as new! 
I am torn on refinishing it or not.
I love the wood's color and there are just a few dings around the bottom and edges, very minor.
Maybe just a bit of dent and ding repair will be enough! 
I bought this collection of mirrors months ago from Joss&Main.
They were all different colors, so some white chalk paint was used to pull them together more.
I love the hint of distressing on each frame.

Lamp $30 at HomeGoods.
A steal at $15 at HomeGoods! $50 on ZGallerie,
Real sheepskin found on Amazon $60.

The babies are sure loving it:



Now I just have to decide what to do with this empty room!I still haven't decided on a light fixture!!!
It is the first room past the foyer, so right now guests are greeted with a hole lot of empty. 

Suggestions?

  1. You need a giant, ornate rug in there. And some ceramic statuary, like little birds. Lots of little birds. They have some inexpensive ones at Tai Pan Trading. :)

  5. The piano is in very nice condition. I wish that mine (in storage) looked so nice. I really like all of the white decor that you have around it. The wall of mirrors looks great! My husband's name is Nate as well. :) Visiting from the TwelveOEight link party. ~ Jamie
