I always wanted to play the piano when I was younger... but alas, we had no piano in our home so that would have made it a bit difficult to learn how to play and practice. Instead, I was stuck with the stupid clarinet that I inherited from my older brother after he gave it up (but I'm not bitter... really). Blech, I still get the heebie-jeebies when I think of sucking on that gross reed. Eww. I lasted about two years before I quit that damn instrument like a bad habit.
Anyway, when we have a house and kids, I would really love to have a piano. I want to encourage our kids to learn how to play it and I would love to hear it singing in another room while I'm working/attempting to cook/pretending to clean. This post on Design Mom totally inspired me when I came across it... I love that she took a sort of beat up piano that wasn't worth restoring but was still playable, and made it into a pretty and quirky addition to her home. It has so much charm in this bold kelly green color and I am now dying for my own kelly green piano :-)
Do you have a piano? Do you actually play it or is it more of a decoration in your home?
