We did it. We painted the piano. Again. I shared a couple posts back that I had the itch to change it up and had a soft pink on the brain. It was like it came to me in a dream, not really just in a daydream actually. So I went with it. After thinking pink I searched my paint deck and online looking for ideas. I came across chalk paint in a soft pink. I had originally used chalk paint the first time we painted our piano and loved the result, not to mention how quick and easy it was to paint. I decided to go with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint again. My sweet hubby actually painted it pink for me when he got home early from work one day. It took him about an hour and there wasn’t paint everywhere like there would be if I did it.
Painted Piano Before
Remember this is what it looked like before? After uploading this picture I realized I do still like the before. But I was ready for a change. I get something in my head and it drives me crazy until I change it. Please say I am not alone?! Like that temporary wallpaper- it was and is still so cute. But it had to come down. Thankfully temporary wallpaper is just as easy to take down as it is to put up. There was zero damage to the wall.
The piano before was painted in Paris Gray Chalk Paint
Painted Piano After
It is a fun change and I really love it for Spring. It didn’t even take half of the can of chalk paint to paint the piano. It really goes pretty far. That is with two coats of paint. I finished it with a wax top coat from Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. That is a must! I used the brush they recommend with the wax. I would recommend looking up a local place to you that sells Chalk Paint. The best thing about using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint is that you can leave it right in your home! We just put down a drop cloth and painted it in the room.

We changed up the chairs also. I kept my pink chair- just moved it to a different spot. I love THESE white chairs that we went with. I really wanted to add another chair to the side of the piano. Every week we have to pull an extra chair from the kitchen to the piano when the piano teacher comes to our house. Or when I sit down to help the girls. These chairs are small scale, comfy and I love the bright white.
Another change I made was painting THIS big clock. My clock has always bugged me. I know a couple of people who own this clock and their clock is a brighter white. Mine was cream and looked dirty with the new white chairs (see above picture).
We used Chalk Paint in Antoinette
I have to say that after we bought it I wished I would have tried THIS chalk paint- from all that I have seen it looks basically the same and half the price!
