White Chalk Painted Piano

Uh, this poor piano has been played many times. Just take a peak at that seat... This piano belonged to my grandmother who passed it down to my mother. After a recent home remodel, my mother asked me to give it a facelift to match her decor. I had painted several furniture pieces in chalk paint® before, but a piano would be a first.

Challenge accepted. :)

How To Paint A Piano With Chalk Paint®

Prep Your Piano For Paint

  • Wipe down the surface of your piano. Make sure it's free of dust, dirt and grime. If your piano has an oil residue from products like Pledge, you'll want to wash it with a solution of TSP before you begin. 
  • Tape around the foot pedals and keys (and anywhere else you don't to get painted).

Choose Your Chalk Paint® Brand and Color

  • The finish on the piano bench didn't match the piano so deciding to paint both the piano and the piano bench was an easy choice! We wanted to lighten up the dark piano so we decided on Chalk Paint® decorative paint by Annie Sloan in Old White.

This piano received 3 coats of paint. If you happen to experience bleed through on your white painted furniture projects, I would suggest trying these easy solutions to help you with your tannin problem.

Protect Your Chalk Paint® Finish

  • Since the piano doesn't get much traffic I opted to seal the chalk paint with AS Clear Wax.

The piano bench received a similar painted treatment and was given a new pad and some new fabric. The result? It kind of makes me want to break out in Beethoven.... or at least put in a little more time for piano practicing.
