A little while ago I had a dear friend who fell in love with the idea of a turquoise piano. So deeply did she fall that she began to search the classifieds to get one right away. This is the beauty she found and even talked the woman down to $50.00. As soon as I saw it I knew it had great potential for an amazing transformation.
Just look at all the inlay and detail on the front.
Then we primed with Kilz Primer (my favorite)
And then painted with Krylon.
(My friend has a lot of green in her house and was initially drawn to go that route, but after some discussion she decided on turquoise and I know she made the right choice.)
Next was to add the glaze
At first she felt sick.
I told her not to worry, that at first you do get a sick feeling at seeing all your hard work looking so dirty. She relaxed quickly and could see how when wiped down the glaze really only stays in the cracks and edges and gives depth to all that gorgeous detail.
And now it sits in her house looking awesome.
It is really such a beauty and I love how it turned out.
