Project 2012: Painted Piano

One of the projects I would really love to complete this year would be to re-finish this piano.

It isn't overly expensive or particularly beautiful...but it is sentimental. It was my Mom's piano, it was the piano I played as a child and since I lost my Mom as a child, I am eager to keep this hand-me-down and restore its beauty. One little problem...I am a chicken! I am petrified that if I try to beautify it, I will destroy it! So, I am putting it out there in January that I would like to restore this piano by year's end. Ok, now I have eleven months to get the courage, unclench my knuckles and start are some inspirations....

and this is just serenity now!

Ok, I have worked myself into a panic at the thought of doing this! Give me a nudge...pick your favorite!!

  1. It is great that you are holding on to a family heirloom that means so much. The turquoise pianos are quite stunning. I quite like the idea of a grey one. I also have inherited my grandfather's piano which I used to play.

  2. Can you believe that I have never even thought about painting a piano?! I absolutely adore the examples you chose! My favourite has got to be the white one in the last picture - it's beeeeaaauuutiful!

  3. LOVE them all! Although, a classic might be best remembered as a classic--I'm going with the white! Best of luck pulling the trigger on this project! I'm available to help you paint!


I'd love to hear what you have to say! Thanks for stopping by and sharing!
