Top of a Piano II

Hello Everyone!

Happy Spring!

I'm sorry I haven't been posting regularly lately!
I'm still getting used to my hubbies work schedule and juggling everything from kids to dinner.

Y'all mom's know what I'm talking about ;)

Well....aside from working on my spirituality and trying to organize my life a bit, I was working on my piano display.

Working....that sounds like so much work. lol

It wasn't.

It's a matter of the right accessories.

So here it is :)

If you remember from the inspirational post, this is the piano that I refinished.

I don't know what I was thinking.


It's totally out of tune now
After reading and researching AFTER i refinished it, I found out that pianos are suppose to be sanded down by hand ONLY.

By using the electric sander, I guess I messed up all the chords inside :(

No wonder musical pieces sound so much different now.


At least it looks ok. 

It wasn't much lighter though.

I wanted it to match the floors.


Yea.....I was pretty "matchy-matchy" type of gal.

Here are the close ups :)

My Favorite :)

What do you think? 

Did I nail it? 

Missed it?

I was hoping to find a lamp, but didn't find anything that wowed me.

Maybe on my next thrifty outing :)

Hope you had a wonderful Women's Day ;)

Back in Ukraine, it's one of the most celebrated holidays!
