We used to keep this vintage piano in a little corner of the house because the original oak color didn’t match our white decor theme. So I decided to brighten it up with some glossy white paint and incorporated it into our sitting room where it now takes center stage.

These Are The 5 Items I Used: Rust-Oleum Primer, BEHR Ultra Pure White Paint, Latex Paint Cleaner, Plastic Drop Cloth and Rolling Paint Brush

(I tried to place a plastic drop cloth on the floor to protect the tiles but I couldn’t life or move the piano because it’s too heavy. So I just covered as much of the floor as possible and then later used latex paint cleaner to remove paint stains off the floor.)

After several coats of primer the white color was now apparent. I used more primer so that the painting time would be lessened.

Then I started painting away using a rolling brush. I waited for each paint coat to dry before applying more. Later I used cleaning bleach to clean and whiten the keys.

After several coats of paint over 1-2 days, this was the final result.

The glossy white color looked so beautiful that we even moved the piano to the sitting room where it’s now the focal point of the room.
