We recieved an upright piano (M. Schultz and Co.... if that matters )from Freecycle last spring. It does need tuning (which I haven't gotten around to yet... don't know when I will). My thought was to get it for the kids, have it tuned and for them to take lessons which I did as a child. Pretty much right now it's just sitting in our too small as it is livingroom taking up space (although we do use the top of it for storing our photobooks and DVD's and underneath we put some of the kids toys). I just wonder if we should re-freecycle it to someone who would use it so we could have the space for a loveseat for the kids( we could REALLY REALLY use more seating). Right now in the livingroom we have a sleeper sofa, rocking chair, computer desk and entertainment center.....not to mention most of the babys toys and a tote of Little People... all this in a 12'x15' room. I just can't decide...... WWYD? Right now we rent and hopefully within 2 yrs will be able to buy a house so in the long run I'ld like to keep it but for now we really could use more sitting in the livingroom. There's no other possible place for it in the house either. I'm in a MAJOR purging effort of things around the house but I don't want to act too hastily and regret getting rid of it since the chances of us getting a piano ever again (especially a free one) are slim.
