Since the unveiling of my new blue piano, several people have come forward to admit how awful they thought the idea to paint my piano blue was. My mother's exact words were, "horrendous." But in retrospect, they have all admitted that they like it.
This makes me happy because us angsty artsy types love adversity. I wouldn't have been happy had you all jumped on my idea, but find great satisfaction now in the vindication of my artistic vision. (We also like to be melodramatic.)
I still haven't taken many pictures of Bluey, as we still need to attach the music stand. But here are a couple more. I wasn't sure what to put on it, until I remembered that old books make everything look better. So now my great grandmother's copy of Little Women along with some of my favorite old books adorn the piano.
It also now matches the hand-painted cross Roberto gave me from El Salvador and is the resting place of our candy dishes. (A set of these are still up for grabs for Christmas, family.) I included the window in the picture, so you can see out to the snow this morning! I'm still considering if I want another coat of polyurethane on it. We put on one coat of satin polyurethane, which is why in the photo on my first post it looks glossy. (It looked especially glossy in that photo--it doesn't look that glossy in person.) I love the gloss, so I'm considering adding one coat of semi-gloss polyurethane. Thoughts?
