Antique Piano
I always love when Katherine from Classic Campbell alerts me to one of her latest projects. This piano was very loved; it is an honest-to-goodness family heirloom, first belonging to her great-great grandfather. What was not so great-great about it was its funky bumpy texture and unappealing color.

With this antique clock as her inspiration, she came up with …

    I love how this turned out. I have an antique piano made in Chicago that needs restoration, I was just going to gut it and make it a drop-front secretary but I can’t see myself doing it anytime soon. If anyone wants it, they are welcome to have it. The spiderwebs are free! Email me if you’re interested at

    I feel kinda bad because I usually LOVE all the transformations but I don’t like this one. I guess I’m just a purist who loves a beautiful wood piano. I think that it is so classic and untouchable. I can appreciate all the work that she put into it though. It definately looks exactly like the clock.

    I’ve got to say, this one doesn’t work for me. A beautiful old piano, ruined – in my opinion.

    This is the kind of thing where somebody at some time in the future will hopefully spend some time removing all this paint and restore the piano to its original glory.

    I get the old eroded bronze antique look, I just think an entire piano is too much furniture to be such a bold statement. I adored the cherry wood.

    And the pink walls make me nervous… unless this is an adobe style house or a life size doll house these two colors should not exist together. It’s simply wrong.

    Sorry, this was not my favorite.

    Oo, I can say with much confidence that this is a no-go for me. I think it’s pretty heinous — that poor piano..! And it was a family heirloom..?! Goodness gracious. Wasn’t a good sanding and re-staining an option..?

    contrary to all the negative comments I really like this piano (which kinda surprised me, because I’m usually in favor of sanding and refinishing thing instead of painting) now about the pink walls…………..

    well i have to say that for this piano (since it’s such a statement piece) that the room really needs to be coordinated around it I’m thinking white walls, blue/green drapes, hardwood floors, a lighter colored (maybe tan or white) shag-ish rug, etc

    anyway i really do like the finish =)
