  1. Big yellow house on Loveland Street
    August 4, 2012

    I am geeked to see the painted pianos!! I fell in love with a photo of a green piano from a better homes and garden magazine picture 6 years ago while we were building our house. So when I found an old blond colored piano I had to have it (husband could not imagine why I purchased it). Since we were in the middle of building, I stored it at our neighbors and kinda forgot all about it. She called me today and asked me to kindly take it to my own home. SO…I remembered the image I had and decied to google “paint a piano” for inspirations. Waalaa! I find your site and am now ecstatically trying to decied what color to paint it!!! I am leaning toward blue/turquise/robin’s egg shade…but maybe red ( I combine the two in my decor). And then there is always the many favorite shades of green!! How do I decide? Please help. And does the Lisa who owns the Robin Egg blue piano #4 (VERY LOVELY!!) have any tips on things to know on how to paint a piano. I am loving your site! I wish we could have a cup of tea and talk about all we have in common!

      I’m so glad you liked the round-up of pianos! You are so lucky to have a piano to paint; I wish I had room for one here. I love turquoise and red together too; I actually decorated entirely in those colors last Christmas! I do recall seeing some tips on how to paint pianos while researching for this post. Perhaps something might come up in a search? Unfortunately, I’ve never painted one, but I’m sure that it would require a primer or a good paint with a primer built-in. Check Lisa’s site (the Pennnington Post) as she might have some tips over there. Good luck! If you paint it, please let me know. I’d love to see it!! ~Kerri, A Pop of Pretty

    Love splash of color but didn’t dare to pain the whole piece and end up painting just a bench and the lamp bases yellow http://pinterest.com/pin/136163588704578845/

    Hi Kerri-Lynn,
    So, I am ready to get rid of our old 500lb beast in the living room. Dated for sure, but Avery at age 6 taking lessons and not-so-helpful Nic at age 2 (likes to see how hard he can bang the keys) make purchasing a new, nice Yamaha not a realistic investment at this point. These are great! I think I’ll tackle it, and if I do, I will definitely send you a pic.
    Love your sight, you have a gift! Now if I can just convince you to come see me in NB for a few days, you could re-do my house…

      Hey, Tara! Thanks for coming by, and thanks for the sweet comments! You should definitely paint it…and I’d LOVE to see the results. Sounds like your piano practice goes a little like ours around here! Gabrielle is still practicing on a keyboard, and we had to put it in a far corner of the house so that the boys don’t maul her to death while she’s practicing! Must be those light-up keys…to hard for a 2 year old boy to resist! Hope all is well with you guys! xo KL

    I love it! I am the girl with the Robin’s Egg Blue piano (#4). I painted it almost 2 years ago and we still LOVE it. Instead of being a big brown monster in the corner, dragging the energy of the room down, it cheers me up every day. :)

    But I wanted to tell you that I did a LOT of research before painting it, including talking to 2 different men that tune pianos and one that is a concert pianist. They all agreed that painting it would not affect the sound. Although none of them could for the life of them figure out why I would want to paint my piano and thought I was crazy.

    I am crazy….crazy happy with my robin’s egg blue piano. Thanks for featuring it! Lisa~
