Rebekah couldn’t complain when she received this piano for free, at least not out loud. Because after it made its way inside, she nearly asked the four men who lugged it up her narrow staircase to take it back down into the basement where no one would see it! Not wanting to put them through any more pain, she opted instead to do something about the fact that it was beat-up and sporting a shade she lovingly calls “probably the most offensive color ever created.”

So with the help of some plum paint and new funky floral fabric, she is singing its praises now! Hallelujah!

But please don’t stop the music, because the show isn’t over yet. Check out another musically inspired piece from Heidi way over in Norway at The Painting Paint Shop. Isn’t it cute, jah? (that’s my Norwegian accent. I have no idea what a Norwegian accent sounds like).

It looks like it’s smiling at me and wants to give me a hug! Great job ladies!

    “At least not out loud.” Heeee. I love the piano makeover – so classy. I was skeered the After was going to be a pink-painted kitschfest, but I love this!

    Oooh, love the piano. Like the cabinet just as much in the before, but it’s pretty all done up too.

    Wow, I have a piano that was given to me and it is the same “offensive” color as the before pic. I am truly inspired to do something about it now….

    Some great stuff there! Some great talent! I am totally old-school when it comes to pianos (My First Love) and personally I can’t bear to see them turned any other color than a nice stained wood, but I’m sure she’s very happy with her project.

    The guy who tuned the piano felt the same way, Amie… he was HORRIFIED!! 😉

    Very clever way to tie two unrelated pieces together in a blog entry. I like both do-overs. They go from a dark, heavy look to pretty and light – – even though I do like natural stained wood.
