Thursdays, instead of working during the day I work in the evening. This means that I get to adventure during the day and look for awesome finds like this one I’m SO PUMPED about!
Looking for shelves, I went to our local “creepy” thrift store. I found some runners-up but nothing perfect. Then I ventured over to the “transfer station” otherwise known as the dump. They have a shed (“re-use center”) where people leave stuff in hopes that one man’s trash will become another man’s treasure.
Have I built it up enough yet? I thereby present to you:
All of the keys work and it sounds amazing. I grabbed it assuming it didn’t work and was excited about it for the decor factor. A friend of mine who was at the reuse center the day before said that it wasn’t there Wednesday. Clearly I was in the right place at the right time.
Yeah, that’s a picture reused from Friday’s living room tour. Doug already took it to band practice (before I could get some close ups for the blog) so who knows when I’ll see it again.
Our friend Adam found one in great condition on ebay for over 2 grand. Ours is pretty banged up but I’m still excited about such an amazing score!

Your find. I am jealous. (Even though I have zero place for something so grand.) I will be sending John Paul Jones’ belly button after it.
