Salutations! So … what happens when you buy a largish piano and you have not a single empty spot in the house for it to land? The furniture gets a little rearranging! The buffet was the largest piece of furniture standing between me and my son’s eternal musical happiness — so I moved it into the kitchen.
I had intended on getting rid of the buffet altogether. Much of the living room furniture went to my mom’s house or the consignment shop. But as I was hauling furniture out piece by piece, I began to realize that I had nowhere to store my pasta bowl, my vases, and all my little goodies that I couldn’t seem to part with.
So a buffet in the kitchen started making sense. It has become home to our silverware and snacks, and I think I might actually like it more than the table that was here before because it has more storage. Man, I can fill this baby up with tons of stuff!
I am now on the hunt for a smaller coffee table and fabric to slipcover a small-frame chair for the living room. The piano could use a couple of friends!
What’s bloomin’ in the back garden? The primrose is still blooming and the echinacea (i.e. coneflower) is in bloom. The hydrangea is just starting though. I might have picked these a little early – I couldn’t resist!
