How To Paint A Piano White

The wax, although the biggest pain in the arse when using chalky paint and usually one of the reasons i avoid using chalky paint like the plague, makes the color deeper and darker. The piano is holding up well and i’m loving the contrast of the furry white rug on the black piano bench.

But if you just want the piano to have a better look, and it isn’t an expensive heirloom piece, it really isn’t that huge or daunting a task to paint a piano.

How to paint a piano white. The wax helps to give it a little bit of a shine and just finishes off the piece. I just inherited a piano and it is old and dark and doesn’t go with the aesthetic of the place. I learned to play on that piano!!!

Choosing a white paint colour. If i were to do it again, i would have opted for a can of paint in a softer white and a sprayer. Paint an old piano white with chalk paint i have wanted to paint an old piano for a decade.

Thank you for your help. Make sure to sand in between coats. Paint pick your favorite most bright color and begin painting, using a foam brush to make it smooth.

I am painting a vast light filled interior that has high ceilings and ocean views and i have seen so many modern homes with stark white clinical interiors but i think it will be too bright for this house. If you love the look of the painted piano, or want to save the idea for later take a moment and share on social media and pin it for later. In this order, i painted 2 coats of pure white, 1 coat of shellac to seal the stain, a 3rd coat of pure white to recover sealed stains, and ended with 1 to 2 coats of polyurethane (see note below).

You don’t have to paint it green, or any particularly bright color. Suitable products, logistics, timings… also high on the painting list is what not to paint on a piano. Even if your piano looks neat, you should take the time and care to clean it.

To paint your piano, make sure the keys and pedals are taped off. It’s the reason i play the piano. Next, prep the piano for painting.

A piano may seem like a huge, daunting task. Use the different sizes of your brushes to cover the areas you need. Each column in the chart includes two pale, two mid and two deep tones, with the perfect white to complement them at the bottom.

In all, it took me about two hours to paint the piano and the bench. Once the piano was back in the house and accessorized, it does not look quite as bright, but could still be a a bit warmer. Fill a small bowl with soapy water and use a wet rag to gently rub your soapy solution along the surface of the piano.

Clean your piano with soap, water, and rags. Chalk paint is made of latex paint, calcium carbonate, and water. Then, i used some beeswax chalky paint wax i had in my stash to wax it.

I was having the same “is this sacrilegious” feeling as the boys! You can paint it white, a bold color, use chalkboard paint, do a crackle finish, paint it using stencils, or paint your piano a metallic color. Otherwise, your paint job will trap the grime.

I searched painting a piano in google and your post was the first one i saw. Chalk paint is available in spray can form in addition to normal paint form. Out with the masking tape and masking machine.

We actually had a piano waiting in my sister in law’s garage for awhile waiting for us to go pick it up and bring it back the 700 miles, but another sister in law got to it first after she heard i wanted to paint it. Natural white, whisper white, lexicon half, linen white, infinity white, nearly white, antique white, sorta white but a bit greyish… choosing a white paint for your home can be is the hardest design decision you will make. Choose a mid tone to create a cosy and.

Masking up before spray painting a piano. It also protects the paint. I was using a sprayer, so i taped up cheap plastic drop cloths to the walls around the piano to prevent overspray.

After the third coat of paint, i waxed the piano. But if you feel like your piano needs a fresh start, this is the cheapest, fastest way to go. I find it easiest to use a wax brush.

I also taped off the keys completely, and opened the piano top and taped in part of the plastic drop cloth to cover the inner workings of the piano. Let’s just say, the piano hinge was a lot easier to take off than put back on. And if you take the whole thing apart and paint each piece and put it all back together, then, yes i would think that a huge, daunting task.

There is much to think about when tackling a painting project: In most cases, chalk paint will require a top coat to preserve the paint. I like the grand piano 1/4 as it is a bit more of a ‘putty’ colour than hogs bristle.

Pale tones offer a hint of colour for a light and airy feel, or can be used to gently lift ceilings and woodwork against deep or mid tones.


I like the color on this and it's similar to our piano
