Painted Piano!

We painted our piano white!  When we removed the front to be painted,  I saw how beautiful the "inside" of a piano is.






This is what she looked like before....

and after!


Here is a " before" decorated for Halloween!

Look at all the keys and knobs and......

it even has my husbands name on it!


I have decided to leave the front off for a while and enjoy seeing the inside of the piano!

  20. Hi Penny, I love your painted piano and the gorgeous display you created on the top of the upright. Everything is so charming and inspiring.
    You know I had one just like this growing up in the basement and my mom and I painted it white, even back then. Later when I was a little older we got another piano for the living room and I have that one to this day and just this summer also painted mine white and LOVE it. It's not an upright though. It is a consel style. It sure turned out gorgeous in white.

    Thank you for sharing.
    Hugs, Celestina Marie

  24. When my mom got our piano tuned, she always took off the front -before the piano tuner arrived. I loved playing it that way and seeing everything inside going up and down as I played. Your piano looks lovely in white, very fresh and light.

  30. Very cool. I'm not sure I would have had the guts to paint my piano, but yours turned out fantastically! I'm starting a new link party today and would love for you to come link up. http://www.gingerlymade.com/2012/11/show-and-tell-1.html

  31. I loved seeing your piano. In fact, I have one just like it in my garage. I'm forwarding this to my husband because I had just asked him to paint it white for me. My sister and I both learned to play on our piano but she is the real pianist but has several of her own so I get to have this one. I have painted and antiqued it olive green in the 1960's and my husband stripped the paint (big job!) and varnished it in 1980's and my niece had it and recently gave it back to me so the next phase will be white. Thanks for the confirmation on the color.

  32. I just left a comment and realized I said 1960's instead of late 1970's for the olive green color. I'm not that old!....lol
