Years ago, my (now) husband inherited a piano from a neighbor while living in a 3-flat. Unable to pass up the beauty, the neighbors joined forces and were able to move the piano out one window and in through another. Getting it in was hard, but getting it out when it came time to move a few years later? That was impossible. Rather than leave the whole thing behind or pay to have it disassembled and moved, my husband did the only sane thing (yeah right): he took out the guts and took those with him... It now hangs on our wall, over an old Grundig stereo, and although the dust settles terribly, we love the story, the inspiration, and the conversations it encourages when new people come over. (And we apologize to those that may find pulling apart an innocent piano a sacrilege!)
What surprising, nontraditional stuff do guests see on your walls?
