Piano Makeover with Rust-Oleum Chalk Paint.

July 13, 2017

I’ve got myself a blue piano!


The before before was a typical brown wood piano.

Several years ago I painted it a light cream color and I loved it so much better.  Wood doesn’t last long around these parts!DSC_5074

You don’t notice the cream piano though because of the lovely 1970’s orange crush velvet chairs huh!?

I bought them a good two years ago with the intent to slipcover them.  Ha!  two hours in I knew slipcovering was not for the faint of heart and apparently I’m faint of heart!

I pawned that off to the professionals and I’m glad to have them crisp and white.



My favorite part about this makeover is that nothing new was brought into the room.

 It goes to show how transforming color can be!

New coat of white going on…



And it already looks so much lighter and brighter!


When you’re just too lazy to bother with the ladder.


Walls were painted white and the piano was painted with Rust-Oleum chalk paint in a mix of “Serenity Blue” and  “Linen White” to lighten the blue just a bit.

Art work was left the same but the frames were updated using Rust-Oleum “Metallic Gold” spray paint.

I bought an old vintage music book at the antique store and just framed each song.


I have no tutorial for painting the piano.  I just grabbed a paint brush and got to it!  I didn’t take anything apart.  Didn’t move the piano out, just wiped it down from grubby little fingers and painted right over the original paint.  The beauty of chalk paint!  No sanding, no prep work, just get to it!




The chandelier was a Craigslist find and was originally black.  I spray painted it Rust-Oleum “Heirloom white”.  By far our most used color.


Lighter, brighter, and so much better.
