Painting the Piano: In the Midst of Madness
The Piano is Now Blued
In case you get the urge to paint some piece of furniture yourself, here's my advice - follow this How to Paint Furniture tutorial from Young House Love (yes, I'm not crazy about the name of the blog either, formerly "This Young House").
One major edit:
Step 0: Test Existing Paint Job for Lead
Really easy, they sell these Q-tip-like Lead Tester swabs at any place like Lowe's, and you get two or three of them for $5. This way you can avoid creating a lot of lead dust, which would suck.
I anticipate painting on the monster face tomorrow (Saturday!) so if you haven't voted, get to it! The poll closes at midnight tonight!
