Can You Paint a Piano? Part 2

I have an exciting update on our Can You Paint a Piano Series!

Why should a beautiful instrument be an eye sore in your home?

Suzanne is here to show us that you do not need to live with a blah piece of furniture, especially one as big as a piano!

She knew she wanted to paint the piano, the biggest challenge was selecting a paint color.  It's cool to paint a piano, it's not cool to paint it again, because of a bad color choice.

She looked at many options and decided to start with Annie Sloan's Old White.



Let me point out that this is not her first time painting!  Suzanne is an avid DIYer and has used ASCP before.
Her little helper!


One coat of Old White and she looks better already!  The single coat took about an hour to apply!

Oh no, she didn't stop there.  Her kids liked the white but she was searching for a pop of color for this room.

While she loves ASCP, she could not find a color that worked for her.  She was reluctant to make her own for a project this big, so she found CeCe Caldwell.  She was totally smitten with the popular Santa Fe Turquoise.

Are you ready?

Isn't that AWESOME!?!

I will be back with the finished piano shortly.  Be sure to follow along for the reveal!

Lovvvvve! I painted my piano turquoise a year ago and have no regrets. I seriously look at it every day and my heart swells. I loved it so much, it's the namesake for my business! Can't wait to see this one all finished!
