Of a piano!
I bought it for 150 bucks on craiglist, spent three insane days painting it in our dining room, and now have a lovely piece to show for it. At least, I think it's lovely. :)
I first painted it this awful tan color. It was pretty in my head but seriously so wrong in execution. So at 8pm on Monday night I called it quits and drove back down to Home Depot, bought black satin paint, and painted the first coat of black that night from 9 to 11pm. The second coat went on during Trenton's nap the next day, with finishing touches that night after the boys went to bed. (I sanded some of the edges just a bit so it looks "distressed.") I still have to finish the bench (photos to come), but mostly we are just SO grateful to have our house back! We thought the piano was too heavy to move to and from the patio, so we tarped the dining room and did the whole project inside. It consumed our whole household for a few days. But now things are back in order, and I'd say it was all pretty well worth it.
I may not be the world's best pianist, but having a piano in our home growing up was the biggest way I felt the Spirit as a youth. That's the main reason I wanted one for our family.
It has a great sound for such a little piano, by the way!
