DIY: The Great Piano Upgrade.

 Hey there, good folks!

So, awhile back, I posted a belly pic on my Instagram with our newly-painted piano in the background. Folks were happy to see the bump and all, but I received more questions about our snazzy piano (rightly so, if you ask me!). My forever-amazing husband did the grunt work of taking our instrument from drab to fab, and I chronicled the process as best I could. Check out the pics below to see how he did it! :)

The Piano: Before

Step One:

Prime piano with

Zinsser Cover Stain Primer in White

 (I caught him right when he'd begun to apply the paint, but I wanted to show what the primed piano looked like--ignore that bit of green...)

Step Two:

Apply three coats of

Behr Premium Plus Satin Finish paint in Herbal Garden

(make sure to let each coat dry fully between applications.)

Step Three:

Add whimsical details! We found these

adorable owl knobs at Anthropologie


That's it, peeps! If you have any questions, feel free to leave 'em in the comments.  :)
