(The kids have started asking for a Ballroom, which is not likely to happen. But maybe a Billiards Room someday... The parallels with the game must stop there, though -- no murdering of Mr. Body here please!)
Anyway, perhaps coincidentally, this room has proven to be quite a mystery to me! We moved all of our music stuff in there, and some of our school books and materials have found a home there, too. But I can't seem to pull it altogether well. Something about the colors is not working for me.
So I called in Colonel Mustard, Professor Plum and Miss Scarlet to help me get some CLUES for this room, as I now rely on crowdsourcing to answer these questions for me!*
Ok, so here's what we have to work with so far:
What should we do with this piano bench and/or the whole piano?? My neighbor has suggested making a fabric seat cover for it, which sounds a little difficult to me, but possibly do-able. If I do that, what color/pattern?? Or dare I paint the bench top?? I feel like all the wood in there is a little overwhelming. The piano is quite old -- it's the one I learned on as a child, and the wood is all marked up.... Another idea would be to paint the whole piano black.... but I don't think I trust myself to do that well. Any other thoughts?? Miss Scarlet and I welcome all suggestions.
Now for the next challenge, brought to you by Colonel Mustard and Professor Plum:
What should I do with this wall? I was given these two prints, and I like the pictures, but I do NOT like the frames. I'm not sure what color to paint them, though. Should I use them and/or paint them? Or just find something else for this wall? (Keep in mind I've essentially used up all available monies for these renovations!)
|Who knew Col. Mustard and Prof. Plum were such characters|
We'll continue to play and wait for the mysteries to be solved!
