The PIANO!!!

We finally bought an old piano on KSL. It's a Baldwin Acrosonic for $300. The sound is beautiful, but the orangey wood is not our favorite look. We decided that if this thing was going to live in our living room, it needed a little makeover. Now many may think that what we did is a tragedy, but we LOVE our new piano.
It was a LOT of work pulling the whole piano apart, sanding it all down, taping off the keys, gears, pedals, etc., and then of course having Nic and Nick Martin spend an entire evening spraying the piano blue. But hey, I'm just glad I wasn't stuck painting it with a brush, it would have taken FOREVER!!! These guys were done in a little under 5 hours. Woo hoo!!

I'm so happy you have a piano.... and really happy to see Nic playing it! I was one whose draw dropped when told that you were painting your piano blue, but as everything else you guys decide to do, it is beautiful and so much fun! Play, Play, Play!
