Decorating the Piano

When I was young, I played the piano.

I used to LOVE playing the piano.

I could feel the music as it flowed through me, touching my soul as I played.

It was like no other feeling in the world.

I played Suzuki style piano which means I memorized the music instead of reading it.  I loved this because I felt like I was able to concentrate even more on the “feel” of the music.  One day however,  I was in a large talent show and I forgot my song.  I tried and tried to refresh my memory but I couldn’t and because I studied Suzuki, I couldn’t read the music either. I was so embarrassed, it was the end of my little world so I stopped playing.

I refused to touch the piano again until I was 18.

I finally started to crave playing the piano again just months before I left for college. I then got married, moved out and I wasn’t around a piano again for years.

My Mom  just recently gave me and my son the piano I grew up with.

So after many years, I am finally learning to play again.

I’m in heaven.

Thank you Mom.

The hard part is, I’m re-learning how to play.

The awesome part is, I’m re-learning how to play.

AND the extra-special bonus is, I get to decorate it.

To start with, I wanted some ambience, of course,

and a beautiful light to read the music by.

Then I decided a few encouraging words might be a good,

and some greenery,

and just because it’s pretty, a soft place for my bum.

I also snuck in a few yummy textures.

(not including my UGLY flooring that will hopefully be gone soon)

I love it.

Wish me luck!  I have a long, however grateful, road ahead…

Here is a fun video of the decorating process:

I found most of my pretties at Target but I found my awesome sign at MyLoView.com.

I’m in LOVE with their selection.

Happy DIY’ing friends!

I will see you soon,
