I bought this at Goodwill for 9.50 and painted it with homemade chalk paint. Then I distressed it and sealed it with ASCP clear wax and then dark wax. I painted the handles with Oiled Bronze spray paint. Now it is beautiful.
I took a bold leap and painted my grandmother's 1960 piano. It's been in my house for years but I never loved the way it looked. What do you think of it now? Read the entire post here... http://www.doodlesandstitches.com/2012/05/pa...

Hi Dee, I just got your email about my painted piano and I came over here to look at your
