Cathy,

Ditto Classicalgirl...the chest is beautiful! If I was a bettin' girl I'd bet your friend could get plenty of business from the PW members. Think he'd be interested?

But what I want to know is, where did you get the "music" on the wall? I'd love to have something like that. Seems to me that I've seen another one similar in somebody's pic here in PW; Plays maybe?

Not, Plays. Derick has the same thing or something very similar on the wall over the tail of his Boesendorfer, with American southwest pottery paintings along the wall parallel to the long side.

I really like that music cabinet too. Hobby Lobby is selling some quite like that. I looked at them. Not so badly priced either.

Well I know my buddy would love the business but he ordered bubinga wood so I wouldn't necessarily call it a deal. But if anyone is interested I can PM you his contact info.

Rick - I was gonna say the same thing I noticed the music staff in Derick's photo too. I looked online and saw it there but actually I found one for a bit less at one of the local furniture stores.

BTW - I guess I should give hubby credit for the paint he's been a painting madman just finished our entryway today.

Luckychwee,

All things in time. You have a piano - looks to be a very nice one, not to mention your beautiful daughter to play it too.. .. which makes you very lucky indeed!

Stop practicing and start posting!

It's great to see everyone's pianos. All are beautiful no matter how big or small because there's a piano there to enjoy.

Here are a couple of updated pictures of my piano area. Some of you may remember me as having a pool in the room, torn out for something more important! I'd like to eventually have some music-related artwork. I also have my digital piano and my desk/computer in the room.

Was your piano rebuilt by Fandrich and Sons? Can you tell us about it.. ? The room is so pretty. I just love it.

The room came out very nice - I really like the handy shelf; you can just reach over and grab the music you need.

sleepingcats - I really like the colour of those walls.

Luckychwee - I'm envious of people with grands too, but I'm also envious of people with uprights that are taller than a person sitting in front of it.

sleepingcats, your room is nice, too. I had a friend in Canada whose music room walls were about that color - very calming and peaceful!

Sleepingcats,

Very nice. We have a similar color on our walls. Really looks good with a black piano.

http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/flynref@sbcglobal.net/album?.dir=972f&.src=ph&store=&prodid=&.done=http%3a//photos.yahoo.com/ph//my_photos

Looks blue in the photo but it's really a light green.


Keep a song in your heart!

Thanks everyone for the compliments. I love the calmness of my room too (except for the clutter at my desk).

Apple,

My Fandrich & Sons started out as a brand new Dongbei 6'1" high-polished grand. The Fandrichs removed the innards and made a lot of improvements/changes such as their key-weighting system, changing the hammers to Ronsen-Wurzen, changing the bass strings to Arledge, re-doing the pedal/lyre system and others. I had them refinish the piano to a satin finish as well. You can see more detailed info on what they change on their website:

I seriously seriously considered one of their grands... I just live too far away from the northwest... How do you like it?

Their pianos are supposed to be SUPERB!!!

Sorry to let you dudes down (especially Jerry) but if you've seen the movie "dodgeball"

Then you could say...We are more "Ordinary Joes" than "Globo Gym" frown

However, I will supply a photo of the gym keyboard smile ...unfortunately, not draped with one of the "Eric Prydz" video gals...darn it frown

So many cool looking pictures here!

Here is our new piano in the living room:
http://www.pianoworld.com/Uploads/files/Bosendorfer_room.jpg

Our older piano in the study.
http://www.pianoworld.com/Uploads/files/Yamaha_room.jpg

Now both boys an practice at the same time laugh

If anyone can tell me how to get the picture in the post versus the link please tell me. I continue to be 'ignorant' in that minor detail.

Enjoy,

Charles

These are great pictures.

As "sleepingcats" said - they are all beautiful, and played by beautiful people.

Thanks to all for sharing.

I especially love your Boesendorfer room. The earth tones work very well with the ebony satin and the sky view out the windows is wonderful.

To get the pictures to show up in your post, you may need to change a setting in your profile to enable the "full" reply window, if you are only seeing the "quick" reply window. I use only the full reply window. When using the full reply window, there are a series of blue and white buttons for "Instant UBB Code, next to those "Instant Graemlins". To insert a picture, lick the lower right button that says "IMAGE". That brings up a dialogue box. Paste the URL for the picture you want to show up in your post. It will then show up in the post instead of showing as just a URL. The code in the message composition window would then look like this (except there would be no spaces between the brackets--I added those so the code will show in this post):

[ I M G ]http://www.pianoworld.com/ubb/ubb/confused.gif[ / I M G ]

It is that bracketed code that the "IMAGE" button adds. All UBB code has a beginning and an ending code, with the ending code having the slash mark for the closing one of the pair.
