I’m thrilled to finally share my latest project with you! I’ve had the opportunity to team up with the wonderful folks at Deseret Industries to bring you the Piano Project. I got my hands on a gorgeous piano that needed a lot of love, and today I’m going to show you how I transformed it and gave it new life with a step-by-step tutorial along the way.
Let me show you what it looked like when I very first saw it at the thrift store. It had water damage, spilled paint, chipped wood, dents—and, oh, my goodness, that bench needed help too!
However, can we just take a minute, sit back, and admire this piano? Look at all the wooden detail and the character this piece has. I could not wait to get my hands on this!
I knew I wanted to paint the piano and give it a new look—something bright, but not too bold. I debated painting it a light aqua color or maybe going with a white and leaving the top sections stained.
OK, on to the fun part—how to paint a piano!
