Yes indeed, I took the plunge. A while back, I wrote a post about how we repurposed this piano that was left behind when we purchased our weekend home by the sellers into a piano bar. If you haven’t read it, here’s a link.
If you’ve been reading along lately, you’ll know I’ve been trying to turn our boring brown space at the cabin into a brighter, lighter abode :). With just one quart of ASCP in Old White, I’ve made quite a bit of headway. In this post, I wrote about some of the smallish projects I’ve been able to tackle, and now I can add one more to the list. And believe it or not, I still have about 1/4 of the quart left!
This was my first time using Frog Tape. To be honest, I didn’t notice a huge difference, but I think that was because of the project. I imagine it would be great for painting lines on walls. I may be adding some highlights to the details of the piano at some point. Not sure if I’ll do black or green. Any thoughts?
I’m also going to replace the tiny knobs with something a bit more elegant.
This is my first, but not last attempt to brighten up this space. I’m looking for a rug and some chair cushions. We also need a new table, as the existing one is not very stable, but I haven’t been able to find one that is round, with a leaf that has a base that I like. I might consider getting a white table, and leaving the chairs brown. I’ll be replacing the picture and possibly adding some color on the windows. I’m not sure what to do about the pine ledge on the wall. Maybe stain it a medium green, since that’s a color I’m using a lot lately.
I know some people cringe at the thought of painting a piano, but this particular piano was never really a functioning musical instrument for us. Neither one of us play, and it was so out of tune! And if you read my first post, you learned we literally couldn’t even donate it.
We like it! What do you think?
