Painted Piano



The piano looks so good! If you've been thinking about painting your piano, then run, don't walk, to your nearest paint shop and get yourself a quart of high-gloss enamel. You don't have to paint it green, or any particularly bright color. But if you feel like your piano needs a fresh start, this is the cheapest, fastest way to go.

I had been wanting to do this project for 9 years and kept getting intimidated by it. But there was no need for fear. It was actually very straightforward and is one of the most satisfying projects I've finished in ages. Here are my notes, in case you're considering a paint job.



The best candidate for something like this is a piano that's not worth restoring. Ours was perfect. It was the piano I grew up with and it was pretty beat up when my parents originally picked it up for a bargain $300. By the time I inherited it, it was even more war-torn and the first thing I did was get 3 bids on having it refinished and restored. All three refinishers told me it would be about $2000 to restore the inside and $2000 to restore the outside and that the inside was just old, and even if it was restored it wouldn't be as good as new. All 3 recommended sending this one to the junk yard and buying new.

But new was out of our budget. And so was a $4000 restoration. I got some other opinions, and it was decided that the piano was good enough for lessons for the kids (the kids were babies at the time), and that we could get a more serious piano when and if our kids became serious piano students.

So we just kept the piano as it was and I dreamt of at least giving it a shiny coat of paint — for 9 years. Some years I thought a glossy black would be lovely. But then I felt like black would seem like I was trying to make the instrument more formal than it really was. Later I thought maybe a white coat that we could sand down and make sort of rustic would be nice. Then for about the last 3 years I decided turquoise would be the right thing to do, but I never made it happen. When we were moving, the piano was so depressing I almost left it behind. But Ben Blair said we should bring it to Colorado.

Saturday morning I was craving a challenge so I decided to finally tackle the piano paint job. When I got to the paint store I had a vision: go big or go home. I decided on Grass Green then and there. I bought one quart of hi-gloss enamel, one quart of primer, tinted to match the paint, and a paint brush. Grand total: $40.

By Saturday afternoon I had primed it and painted 2 coats of paint. At that point, I decided the green was a little too yellow, so I took the remaining paint back to Guiry's and asked them to green it up a bit. They spent a half hour with me (as the store was closing) getting the color just right. And they didn't charge me. (I will be a customer for life.)

Saturday evening, I added one more coat and then came back to the project on Monday. Monday I did two more coats. Tuesday I did some touch ups. And tada! It's finished.

Unexpected thing: I can already see this will be the signature piece in our home. I had never thought about a signature piece for our home, but because I went with a bold color, now we have one. Every person that comes in the house is drawn to it. Everyone wants to touch the keys. It's been played more in the last two days than it has been in years. Ben Blair wants to host a recital and call it Variations on the Green Piano.

Other unexpected thing: a piano is big. Physically and visually. It's not just a small accent piece. Once you have a green piano, you basically have to design the room around it instead of just work it into the existing space. Which means I need to talk to the landlord about painting the walls...

Seeing our newly painted piano makes me super happy.
I think the only thing that makes me happier is when I watch my kids playing it while they're standing on books (wink). Green wouldn't be right for every home, but it's perfect for ours. I feel like I just bought this piano 10 more years of life. Next up: time to get it tuned.

Edit. To answer some of your questions.
1) The color is Benjamin Moore Yellow Green (but in my mind it looks more like grass green).
2) I didn't use oil-based paint.
3) According to the paint store: yes, you should sand off any existing hi-gloss finish before you prime.
4) I don't have any "before" pictures to share. I did have some. But they are gone. Because I am an idiot and mistakenly erased them.
5) Yes, I painted the bench as well. When I have the room more put together, I'll share a photo tour.
6) I did not disassemble the piano, but an expert or less-lazy person would have. I painted with the keyboard closed. Once the paint was dry, I opened the keyboard and painted around it with a smaller brush.

Happy painting!

It looks great! Pssst, new knobs would also be fabulous.

My cousin and his wife loaned us their old piano when they moved to Manhattan about 5 years ago. We've been so grateful to have it since a new piano wouldn't have been in our budget and still isn't. My cousin's still in New York (I think they've moved to the Bronx) and we still have the piano, and I still haven't gotten it tuned, although that's been on my to-do list the whole time we've had it. Now I'm sorely tempted to paint it, but I guess it's have to belong to me first. I think I'd have to go with robin's-egg blue. Or maybe a cheerful, buttery yellow.

Maybe it's because we are canceling piano lessons for all 4 of our children next year because of this "economic downturn" or maybe it's because I'm a big sap but reading this make me teary. Our piano is just like yours. When we have the tuner out every other year, he just shakes his head. We love it though and we love what it means to us. Music is a part of our family. We are hoping that by stopping formal lessons for a time our children will play just because they want to. I think your post may be what it takes to convince my husband that painting the piano (I've suggested many times) is not crazy. It's awesome. Sorry for the long comment. Thanks for the inspiration.

So cool...sounds like you have inspired a lot of other piano owners to jazz theirs up, too. May be you could open a second hand piano store where every piano is a different color. Call the store "Rainbow Connection" after the muppets' song, or something more witty. Just a crazy thought. Makes me wish I had taken piano lessons when I was younger. ;)

Your keys look like they are in good condition; I have thought about the restoration as well but was deterred by the cost. The top of our piano has a leather-like covering; what do you think...can I paint that as well? I am intrigued and think I'm going for orange. My living room is mostly in those greens so I think the orange will really pop in the room.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Ok. That's the best looking piano I've ever seen!

This is the post that led me to your blog. I am a musician and my instrument of choice is the piano - namely THAT ONE!

Wonderfrul,

Thanks xx

A friend just gave me a piano that looks a lot like yours (except not green), and I really want to paint it. Thanks for the inspiration!

Great idea, I've wanted to paint my free piano for a couple of years now, and after seeing yours I did it!! Green too, funny, because I had to repaint it after the first coat, too yellow! I have a tuner coming soon, we'll see what his reaction is! Thanks!!
