Piano Preview!

I cannot help myself. Remember how I got this piano for free? Well, I stripped and sanded it (repeat like, 5 times) and then I painted it blue. I love it! But it also means you can see all of the little imperfections in my stripping/sanding job. So I decided to add some little details. It's going to take awhile to be finished and I just can't wait to share so...here we are.




Roses! Did you know that the rose is the national flower of the United States? Who knew?!

Yes, I am hand painting them. I couldn't find a stencil that I liked or one that was big enough and I didn't feel like trying to make five different ones. Basically, I just printed some roses off the inter web and traced them onto the piano. It's working out thus far. Those four roses only took me a good two and a half hours...yeah. It's going to be awhile...but I am so excited!
