Here is another after shot. Bench not shown, because it needs another coat of paint and is currently on top of my dining room table!
Silly me forgot to take a before photo, so here is another piano to help you picture the drastic change that occurred. A big, ugly, brown piano just would not work in my living room!
During--I removed as many pieces as I could around the keys and covered them with a tarp. I also covered all the inner workings, as paint getting on the strings or soundboard would be a very costly mistake. The piano got three coats. Much more paint that a usual chalk job, but the wood was unsealed and sucked a lot of paint up.
After, a beautiful white grand piano. Something I have dreamed about for many years!
