My team at The Magic Brush recently had the honor of painting a piano for a client! This was such a super fun project because the client is so amazing and…… so gutsy with color! I am in love!

Here is what her piano looked like before we got our hands on it.
We prepped it by cleaning it with TSP and then giving it a good sanding + one more cleaning with a damp rag. Then we taped down the piano keys since we needed to paint up close to them.
I used a gray primer that I already had in my paint studio just to alleviate having to buy a new primer. When in doubt…. I always prime!
We used the chalk type paint color Tanya by Heirloom Traditions and my absolute favorite chalk-type paint brush – these oval synthetic fiber brushes. See this project and this one to see some other amazing products they have! )
We brushed most of the paint on the piano but rolled some of the larger flat areas!
This is Jen going to town on the painting. Isn’t she cute??
When finished, we sealed over the chalk-type paint (because it HAS to be sealed) with this clearcoat. It’s liquid gold you guys! The best clearcoat on the market in my opinion!
And here is what the painted piano looks like all done! I am in love!!
The finish is silky smooth!
And it’s so fun to look at!
Look at the difference a little paint makes! For those of you who have an old piano sitting around…. I encourage you to paint it if you are not in love with it. No, you aren’t ruining its value. And yes, your great-aunt Martha will forgive you for painting the family heirloom. I pinkie swear!
And, we’d love for you to pin the graphic we made for you below!
