My New Ancient Piano

If this piano could talk... With its notes in ivory and ebony, the lacy wood that allows us to see the hammers hit the strings, our piano tuner told us it had at least 100 years old. I am very happy I took the time to strip the coats of paint covering it and paint it again, in white. It looks astonishing don't you think?

I have been dying to find an old used piano to repaint. This is EXACTLY what I envisioned. I've NEVER re-painted anything though...did you put anywhere on your blog HOW you did it, what steps, and what materials were used?! I sure would love to know as I'm so afraid I'm going to mess it up! :P
Again, it's very beautiful!!! Thanks for sharing!

@ Laura: I didn't use anything special, just strong paint stipper. I had to use an exacto knife for the tiny details, but that's about it. The thing you need the most is patience in fact! Good luck ;-)
