My “new” yellow painted upright piano is finished! And this time, it’s just right. 🙂 I realize not everyone will agree that this is an improvement, but for me, and for my house, and for the vision I have for this room, it couldn’t be more perfect!
This is exactly what I envisioned all along, although I didn’t envision it sitting against a black wall. That was one of my many (failed) attempts to make that other piano work in this room, so the black wall is temporary. This wall will soon be filled with tree limbs and colorful happy birds.
The color I chose for my new and improved piano is appropriately called Smiley Face by Behr.
And this yellow piano truly puts a smile on my face. I’m so happy that I had a change of heart, and decided to do what I actually wanted to do rather than what I felt obligated to do.
Now I’m really excited to tackle this room and get the walls finished. While that other piano couldn’t hold its own against the Schmacher wallpaper (or my DIY version of it), this bright, happy, yellow piano certainly can. And it’ll be perfect!
And yes, I did end up keeping the original manufacturer’s decal. So at least there’s still a little touch of the original left on this piano. 🙂
So now, here’s a view of the “before” piano…
And here’s where I took a wrong turn (for my house) with the refinishing of this piano…
And the new and improved “after” piano…
This is so much more “me,” don’t ya think? 🙂
