I bought this unfinished piano from my favorite brick and mortar store http://miniaturedesigns.com it will go in the bay window in the living room of the Painted Lady Dollhouse.
They are always very helpful in assisting me with hard to find furniture pieces to complete sets I have purchased and they also carry many unique pieces in their store and online. They are very friendly and helpful. The piano was out of stock at the time, so I had to wait a couple of weeks. I wish I lived in Atlanta so I could go more often.
I have never stained furniture before so I'm a little worried about messing up such a lovely piece. As an alternative I'm considering painting it an off white color and adding gold accents to tie into the furniture.
|I'm not sure when that happened but it was an easy fix.|

CuteinMiniature! I realized my Halloween party was missing the treats for the kids. I asked Beverly to come up with something and as usual she delivered with her wonderful creativity and amazing talent.

The neighborhood kids are busy getting ready for the "Not So Scary Halloween Party", as part of the invite to the party every child is asked to wear costumes of their own creation. All costumes are to be homemade, no pre-packaged commercially produced costumes, however commercially made items are allowed to create or assemble the parts. Prizes will be given out for the prettiest, most original, scariest and imaginative costumes. Here are some of "their" creations (I used color pencil for "face paint" and to add detail to clothing):
I also covered my dinning room table with a DIY table cloth made from candy corn patterned wired ribbon and an orange handkerchief.
