random dining room progress

I randomly started in on a project in the dining room the other day.  I had planned on doing it at some point, just not that day.
I walked in and stared at the piano for a couple of minutes, and then returned with a piece of sand paper.

Before I knew it the piano was all sanded…

And, a little while longer it was primed…
I’ve been spending every available moment painting and now applying the protecting finish.
Looking forward to having one more project marked off the dining room to-do list!

    I love a painted piano – how exciting to give a piece like that a whole new look! Look forward to seeing your "after"!

    I have been looking at my piano and contemplating painting it, but everyone looks at me like me like I'm nuts for thinking to paint a piano. Now I could show them how beautiful yours is turning out and I could win them over. Thanks for the inspiration!

    So many memories! I am so glad that you have it. I was worried no one would take it…and it would go to some random place. How many times did you cry throughout the process? I was going to through old photos and found one our visits and just stared at her. I miss her.

    What color are you painting it? Did you prime it right there on the carpet? Wow! You are one busy lady.

    Can't wait to see it! Yep, that's how I roll too. When I stare at anything too long, my husband starts to get very nervous!

    I wish I had the motivation to paint our dresser – it's been on my to-do list since I don't know the fall. Please send some of your motivation my way!! 🙂

    Wow, wonderful! My piano could stand to be refinished. What did you sand it with?
