My new one is being delivered today. A 20 year old upright I bought for $100. I’m planning on painting it and was curious how your paint was holding up? I’ve heard about using chalk paint. But I really want a glossy finish. Did you wax it at all? Or put a protective covering on it?

Thanks for a response. I appreciate it!

We sealed it with a polycrylic water based clear seal. The color is called Caribbean Splash. http://www.olympic.com/color/paint-colors/caribbean-splash-b57-6  The blog which so inspired me to paint it and has some pretty neat ideas can be found here! http://www.designmom.com/2009/05/painted-piano/ [...]

Besides the gorgeous piano, I love your wicker lamp and I have to tell you, I have the same one! I bought mine thrift last year and put a new drum shade on it. Did you buy yours new and can you tell me where it comes from?

We just haven’t “discussed” it :) but I LOVE your green piano…should be called envy green lol.

my fav line of yours is: “now we have to think ab painting the walls…” so funny!
