Painted Piano - Before and After

I purchased an old player piano off of Craigslist, had it tuned, and decided to paint it. Took me a few days and many many coats, but definitely worth it for the shock of color it adds to my living room area. (I painted it right before I changed apartments, which is why there is carpet in the 'before' picture.)

    The color is called 'mom's lipstick' looks more purple than pink in person, i think.
