Would You Ever Paint a Piano?

In Saturday's episode of Home by Novogratz, Rob and Cortney decided to paint a piano white to add more style to the aged instrument and to match the feel of the hip bachelor pad they were designing.

I think the finished piano looks amazing. Truth be told, I'm generally not a fan of painting perfectly nice solid wood furniture — or pianos, for that matter — unless they're already damaged or cannot be remedied with stripping or refinshing. That said, I love the look of a high-lacquer painted piano, and while I know I'm contradicting myself here, there's something so compelling about a glossy little spinet piano in the corner of a room. I'll draw the line at painting a grand — that's a little too Liberace gaudy for my taste, but an upright or spinet painted piano often turns out quite chic.

I am on the fence about painting a piano for the sake of painting it. Part of the charm of pianos are their traditional quality.
