If you remember a couple weeks ago, on Thoughtful Thursday, I talked about my new piano. It’s amazing by the way. It has caused a problem though.
This is my couch the last two weeks. Our last piano had a storage bench, this one does not. Not that it solved all the problems anyway. We had music stored all over the place.
So, this is what we decided to get, at Target, to fix the problem.
Ta da! I actually had less books than it seemed like since they all fit on two shelves. Crazy! The magazine holders hold all the kids piano books for lessons, and the binders are full of sheet music. Each sheet protector has an entire song and I just pull the whole thing out when I want to play it. It’s working for now. I may need to change it up if I get too much sheet music.
I haven’t yet decided what to do with the bottom bins. For now, the one closest to the piano holds the headphones. I’d love to hang them on the the cool holder on the piano itself but with 6 children around the house I’m hoping for an out of sight out of mind idea, where they don’t touch them unless they need to practice. I know, I know, laugh your head off. I can dream anyway.
My favorite part though, is having a place to put some decorations. I hardly have any places to put decorations, so I’m loving the top.
And don’t you dare put any papers or anything up there. I just might lose it.
So that’s it. The last week has been crazy. We were gone camping for 3 days, went to the drive-in movie (love that there’s one only 20 minutes from our house), and have been crazy busy getting the kids ready to start school again.
