I found this fabric that I loved and made curtains, a table runner and recovered seats on two chairs with it. I was compelled to use as much of that fabric as I could.
This is a piece that I found at an antique mall. It's original finish was not black and it needed a little TLC.
And here is the albatross in the room...
It needs a little something. I am toying with painting it and of course my first choice was Black. For some reason I seem to only use two colors in a room. I need to branch out a little and thought this might be a good place to introduce a little color. However, the realistic side of me says that black goes with everything and it might be easier to repaint the room rather than the piano!
You can see that the finish on this old gal has had better days. I picked her off of Craigslist for around $150.00 and you can tell.
The piece still plays really well, despite her cosmetic flaws. She could use a tuning though.
I would love feedback from anyone who has painted a piano or has any ideas for colors. Please let me know what you think!
