2nd time around Tuesday: Piano

When we moved into our home in Florida we did not have a lot of furniture and it seemed empty with two story vaulted rooms. A couple at church had a lot of financial troubles and were forced to sell all their furniture to try to pay their bills. We stopped by and they had this piano for sale. It was something they really needed to get rid of since it was a large item they would not fit in the tiny home they were moving into. We don't play the piano so it was more to help them out and have something to fill in our empty house that we purchased it.



It was built around the turn of the century and I love it. It is really pretty Tiger Oak wood and I love the style. We paid $200 for it, which is an awesome deal.

Lovely. Plus, you helped out the couple as well, which was what they needed at the time.

Super good deal! I hope the kids are learning to play it and make beautiful music.

It is an awesome find and it doesn't hurt to have good friends:)

For years I prayed for a piano as I wanted my kids to someday take piano lessons. We were finally blessed with being able to buy one at a price we could afford, and our firstborn started lessons at age eight. Now he plays on the worship team at church (and has since he was 14).
