The big move...

They are finally going to begin construction on our elementary school. We have been waiting for this day for about 10 years now. We will be at a temporary school site until (fingers crossed) Fall of 2009. Here are all of my classroom possessions ready for the big move....



However, I brought the piano home with me. The kids have had lots of fun making beautiful music ever since it has been home. The bad blond wood is not the most attractive, maybe I can paint it????? Suggestions?

I see that you have a black bookcase next to it, black is a color that is timeless so if you are going to paint it I would suggest that. My concern would be getting all of the "Nooks & Crannies" I've never undertaken painting a piano so it would be a bit intimidating to me. I suggest possibly speaking to someone at a music store who may possibly be able to offer you more experienced suggestions.

Oh and btw, glad the move went well!

Strip and stain in a deep mahogany or cherry. The piano, that is. The piano.

I wouldn't touch it!!!
How old is it?? and even though you don't like the blond wood, I think it's sort of timeless. It's going back to the school, right??
do you want to put alot of work in to it?
About time you update this blog! LOL

Bren cracks me up! Hey I see why you don't like the blond wood, I could totally visualize it stained. But if it were me, I'd leave it as is. That's just me. Martha Stewart I am not so feel free to disregard me! But I LIKE the way it looks, kind of gives a cool eclectic hodgepodgey look to that pick, I've never been the matchy-matchy sort, you know...

(Tried to look at that hug guy's blog, it was taken down...)

If you are allowed to strip it and it isn't some antique then I'd go with the suggestion of dark stain. I don't know if I'd choose black though.

I'm not Martha Stewart either, I'd just be thrilled to have a piano in my home!
