1. It must have character.
2. It had to be a full upright, as that's all we currently have room for.
3. This piano needed to have a good touch to it.
4. Preferably be something I could fix up a bit to TRULY make it mine.
5. It absolutely needed to be affordable.
Then, one day, I found it. The perfect piano. It met ALL the requirements, and it was even better than I had ever hoped, because it was turquoise. Yep, they painted it a gorgeous blue and I am in love.
How perfect is that? It will need to be re-keyed, and some of the hammers will need to be repaired, but it is a project I am willing to take on!
. . . I'm so spoiled.
