piano and sandpaper

My ever-so-kind-and-sweet mother-in-law gave me her piano - which originally belonged to her mother. I love that she gave it to me. The piano needed quite a bit of work, though. I called around to piano shops and restorers and it was going to cost around $5,000.00 to refurbish it. Yikes! So, Bruce and I decided to do some research and figure out how to do it ourselves. So we did. And it was A LOT of work. And we never want to touch a piece of sandpaper again. And now I love the piano all the more :)

What do you think?? Should we quit our day jobs? :)
