Lovely piano! I also have a Baldwin. We bought it about thirty years ago.

This brings back sweet memories. When I was growing up (late 50s and 60s), in my country town in Texas, all my friends and I had pianos. We all took lessons, and when we got together, we played the piano---duets, improvised songs, hymns, etc. It was so much fun. A very few of the boys took lessons, although many of their mothers had pianos.

And in church, we would read the music and sing the harmony parts. It's a shame that so many churches have done away with hymnals.

My three grandsons have a piano and take lessons (my sweet DIL was a music major), but my three grand-daughters do not have a piano.

I'm a little sad that so fewer homes have pianos these days. Glad you have gotten one for your home, even if it makes a cutting board difficult to manage now.

Enjoy your newest toy.....I still enjoy my piano, even though I bought it over 38 yrs. ago. Our church is one of the few that still uses the hymnals, and I am the organist. I don't play by ear, so if we were to go to the praise songs, I'm sure I'd have to step down.

Good choice! To me, a piano is as important as my quilting. I hope you have many, many hours of joy as you play.

It is beautiful and I would have made the same decision. What a blessing!!! I wish I could find someone who wanted to give a piano away. I to have been wanting one for many years.

My thoughts exactly! Get a folding card table piece of plywood same size, there you go.
