I have a love-hate relationship with the old piano in our dining room. I love the idea of a beautiful old upright piano. But I hate that it takes up needed room and is pretty much just for looks. It came with the house, but it actually belonged to some renters that just ended up leaving it here (probably because it weight 10 tons and they didn’t want to have to move it again). Since we don’t have a fireplace, I often decorate the top in lieu of a mantle.
It isn’t in the best shape. It’s so far out of tune that I can even tell (and I’m pretty sure I’m tone deaf–so it’s bad). It’s missing a lot of ivory from its keys, and some of the keys barely play.
I’ve been seriously considering getting rid of it to make room for something more functional. But I’m not sure if I’m ready to part with it. Especially when I hear and see my little boy enjoying it.
Do you know what sounds even better? A duet…
Do you think I’ll regret it if I part with it?
