As most of you know now my in laws have moved in the last few weeks and it has been super crazy around here. We've been selling off pieces for them and of our own to make way for old family pieces we have taken on. They're pieces that hold sentimental value for Ben, having grown up with them and of which have been around longer then he has.
Our pre-1930's piano is off to a new home, which has allowed for us to make way for this family piece. The piano is going to a gentlemen who is retiring next year and his partner wanted to surprise him with arranging it, we've given it away for free as it's not something she would have been able to do otherwise for him. It's nice to know that we've helped make a dream come true, after 45 years away from the piano.
A huge debate is raging with this sideboard we've taken on as it comes in two parts, the top section comes off. We are debating about doing away with the top section as the lower section by itself compliments our decor better. But in saying that it seems sacrilege to do that don't you think?
So many questions do we still consider painting the wall behind it slate grey, or will it be too imposing with the sideboard there? Oh well I don't know at the moment, all I know is we have to sit with making a decision for a little while.
