Painting a Piano


Would you ever paint a piano? I'm afraid to say that most of the things I own have been painted. (including about half my wardrobe since we bought the house!) It's so easy just to buy a nice piece of furniture from any furniture store, but salvaging old pieces that have great detail can really look amazing when sanded and spruced up with a coat of paint. Take this old piano, for example.

Before...

After...I love the fine detailed distressing even on the final result. It really helps to keep the piano within its era.

And this is a personal favorite of mine, but as you probably know I have a soft spot in my heart for turquoise furniture.
