I am loving digging around old op shops looking for bits and pieces to alter and when I saw this piano I was so excited. I can not play piano but it has always been a dream of mine, and I would love to own a piano, I think they are the most amazing pieces of furniture. Anyway this old brown piano had me squealing with excitement and I just couldn't wait to get it home and get started on it.
I had to remove the workings from the center as they no longer worked, but one piece I couldn't get out so I lined that as an extra little trinket tray and then again I painted the whole piano white.
I used a file and lightly sanded the edges which allowed the original brown to show through and gave the piece a nice distressed finish.
I also painted a metal keyhole and attached it to the front just above the keys and added a small metal word plaque on the lid.
I used Dusty Attic Birds on a branch and a Dusty Attic word -Cherish as well as an assortment of flowers.
Thank you again for calling past my blog, I hope you found some inspiration.
