Piano

I have been procrastinating blogging lately. I'm in search of a camera that takes half decent pictures. I got this gorgeous piano from my aunt that I had to do some major renovating to, and my after pictures I took with my camera don't do the piano justice. I'll still post them but I wish I had something better.

This is the original picture my aunt sent me. It was being stored in a garage, it needed a LOT of work, but I could tell immediately I LOVED it and it was a prize! They had also had it recently tuned and it doesn't sound too bad!
This was my before picture I took, it was after I had been sanding it for a while. (You can also notice the walls, after finishing the piano I was inspired to paint my family room walls!)

My lovely mother came to help me. We had to take some of the piano apart to clean and paint it. Bet you can't guess who is who?

We're twinsies!

Here are my after pictures. We got it all sanded, cleaned up and painted black.. I also painted my room blue. I still need to hang the picture- I'm excited to change the decorations with each season or holiday. Isn't it a treasure?!

Jenny, that is beautiful!!! I absolutely love it! We got a free piano a couple of weeks ago that needs renovating done to it too, but I haven't had the time. Now that I see what you've done, I'm so inspired to get started! Thanks for sharing!

PS - you and your mom are darling!

Oh my goodness. This post makes me happy and sad at the same time! I have been trying to figure out what to do with my giant wall with nothing on it and I decided I want to put a piano there. So, in my mind I had been picturing what I want it to look like (funny I care more about that then the way it will sound) and yours is it! That is what I want!! I have been keeping my eyes peeled on craigslist for a good find...I think I would be scared to death to sand and paint it though!!! I am happy because you have inspired me and sad because you have my piano!!!! :)
