This is the piano bench I would like to forget. It's a rickety, broken down, barely usable bench that came with my free hand me down piano. Now, don't get me wrong...I was over the moon about acquiring this piano. Not so much with it's condition. Each and every single key had the coordinating note written on it in black sharpie. Yes, you heard me right...BLACK SHARPIE. (who does that?) Anyway, thank the good Lord for Mr. Clean Magic Eraser...they really are magic!
Need a place to store your music? Nope...not here...sorry. I can't believe I have made my boys practice their piano while sitting on this death trap for 2 years. What kind of mother am I?
Well, apparently the kind that also forgets about that other piano bench that her friend gave her over a year ago.
In my defense, I knew it needed to recovered and I just didn't have the time or energy to do it (I was preggers at the time). Also, I think it was waiting for that "special" piece of fabric.
And now I have just that...thanks to my new blogging friend Richella! Only in blogland can you compliment a stranger's fabric project, and she ends up sending you her extra fabric. Seriously. I must say that Richella is one of the kindest, most sincere women I have ever had the privilege of "meeting". She is honest and real and beautiful...inside and out. I am blessed to call her my friend. Thank you Richella for being so sweet and for showing me such an example of true Christ-like love and random kindness.
Be sure and go by her blog and say hello @ Imparting Grace.
(And stay tuned for the reveal of the new piano bench. My staple gun stopped working tonight right in the middle of the project. That is so my life.)
