I’ve been wanting to write this post for some time now.  When my sweet friend, Lisa, from The Pennington Point and Shop24 asked my advice on painting her piano, I thought two things…
For one, she was certainly brave. 
 And two, right up my alley.
This version of Saturday Shout Out is more of a feature for her work!
Here is a snippet of her piano before….

And here it is in all of its new turquoise glory….
Oh. My. Goodness.
It is SO beautiful!!  I absolutely adore the color.  When I read this, inspiration had already struck for me to paint an antique chest turquoise….and then I saw this.  Color inspiration affirmed.
Lisa used Olympic’s Alpine Valley…and this may very well be the color going on my chest of drawers this week. 
She then sanded down to the wood in parts, and only to the primer in others.  I especially love this technique on brighter colors like this…love the dimension it gives to a piece. 
And let’s look at it again one more time…
Did you notice the beautiful styling??  I LOVE Lisa’s style, but more than that, I love her Faith and heart…you should definitely check out her blog!
Go here for the original post and here if you want some more details on the piano transformation! 
Beautiful job, Lisa!! Thank you for all the inspiration!!
