Chalkboard Paint Piano Makeover

Piano purists may want to shut their eyes. The following may give you the shivers: I painted my piano in chalkboard paint-AND I love it. One more reason to love chalkboard paint I say. I didn't take a "before" photo of the piano but it looked horrible. Tons of dents and dings and scratches. I even like stuff kind of rough around the edges but this was beyond that.  So, why not be a little funky with it? The paint covers excellent and the flat finish hides a lot- did I mention I can write on my piano? Seriously. I'm in love.

Next up:  I am missing the covers on a bunch of the keys. I have a plan for that too- involving Mod Podge. Yes, you read that right.  Stay tuned :) and I'll show you how it turns out.
