A box arrived this weekend, and I couldn’t remember what is was.
I have so many items shipped here for clients, and my company, that sometimes it slips my mind what has been ordered. Dan said he heard a BIG bang as the trucker quickly dropped it in the front yard, and he worried it might be broken.
Hmm…it was big and it said FRAGILE on it!
I just couldn’t remember what this would be. Sometimes I have smaller items shipped here for clients to check on colorways etc. before installing.
Dan offered to open it. It appeared to be endless hard foam, and bubble wrap to keep whatever was inside from being damaged.
While Dan was working away out front, I wandered around to check out the Wisteria that I planted two years ago on the pergola on the terrace. ( Don’t you love it when someone else unpacks..??)
It’s finally BLOOMING!! I love Wisteria.
I’m excited it’s already growing up and giving shade to the outdoor dining area. I can’t handle the hot sun and heat here in the summer time, so this will add the perfect shade…and the color is amazing.
Meanwhile Dan is feverishly working away…
Oh I think I know what it is….
It’s the custom designed purple and lucite piano bench!!!
Very well packed!!
Ironically the same color as I was just enjoying.
Voila! The purple velvet piano bench. Much better than the standard black piano bench.
And I had it done the perfect height to play piano.
Now I just have to figure out where to store all the music note books.
Of course all the animals need to test it before we do. Bubba the professional product tester is first.
Now the top of the piano and the rest has to get the right accessories.
But while we’re enjoying the bench….
…I can’t stop thinking about the trash. I feel like Andy Mc Dowell in “Sex lies and videotape” I can’t stop worrying about the trash. Where will this go? A landfill?
It’s just so much trash for only one bench!
Can we ship items with less material and hope it arrives unscathed? Should you only buy local??
How can I reuse it? DO you ever worry about this?
