I’ve been thinking about painting our piano bar using ASCP in Old White, so I purchased a quart a few weeks ago. Painting the piano would be such a huge time sucker and we’re only at the cabin on weekends, so I guess I’ve been putting it off. It’s probably a project better suited for when there’s nothing else to do and the weather is colder. In the meantime, I found a few other things that needed some sprucing up. 😉
Here’s a picture of one of the walls in our living room at the cabin. Click here to find out what lurks behind the ‘faux stained glass’. For starters, after I put together the art panels, we decided it would be a good idea to frame it out in white, so out came the ASCP for project numero uno.
For the second project, I decided to lighten up the rocking chair. In the picture above, I think it looks a little lighter than it actually is. Here’s a close up and you can see the difference between the Old White and the chair color.
I outlined a natural indentation in green, and I will be on the look out for a pillow cushion for some extra comfort and much needed color, or maybe I’ll make one.
The floor lamp needed some attention too, so I decided to do a crackle finish.
I had a sample jar of ASCP in Graphite, which worked nicely as the base color.
And here’s an oar that was pretty much invisible until it received a wash of white.
We’re getting there…slowly but surely ;).
I think I better stop or I won’t have enough paint for the piano!
(Do you think we need vertical pieces of wood painted in white between the panels?)
