    I adore the idea of a piano kitchen island! Perfection!!

    The video – String of Pearls, was it? – is charming. 🙂 You and Paul are so cute. 🙂

      I wholeheartedly agree – you and Paul are cute! This video proves that Paul doesn’t really mean to go against you. He is secretly on your side. The top hat! Many men wouldn’t do that and be recorded doing that. How wonderful.

      Oh, yeah, and the island – LOVELY.

      Music is Glen Miller’s “In the Mood”. Which is perfectly appropriate for our girl who is always in the mood for Craigslist and Giant Fancy Things.

      Starts hyperventilating…oh that beautiful piano, will you preserve it so someday it might make music again, or *tear* is it going to be stripped? I love you in all things…well mostly. I HAVE to admit it WILL make a gorgeous, big and fancy kitchen island.

      It’s brilliant! Old pianos are a great source of fancy legs and nice casework! And this one was FREE. Now, I cannot wait to see how you recycle the harp from this instrument.

        I was thinking that the fancy music holder would be perfect as a fancy recipe (or ipad) holder! Free fancy ornate piano as an island – what a fun and creative idea!

    In all my 26 years of kitchen designing, I have never seen a piano used as an island and I have to say I love your idea! And every word you write…

    Thanks for making my day!! Totally awesome!!! I admire your persistence and Paul’s willingness (finally). Can’t wait to see it in the kitchen. Will you remove the guts of the piano, so it provides storage? or perform concerts in the kitchen?

    Love, LOVE this idea!! I wish i had thought of it when i remodeled my kitchen. I play the piano, so the thought of becoming a “collector” some might call me a “hoarder” of pianos has always being my dream! Brilliant.

    That man does surely love you…what a beautiful piece of furniture. I want to play it, even though I barely know how to play a piano.
