for doing this at 10:30 p.m. last night:
And the whole time I'm going, "why, oh why did those Sherwin Williams guys tell me to use oil-based paint??????"
I have visited those all-knowing Sherwin Williams dudes three times now. Each time I said, "are you sure I should use oil-based paint??" And each time they reassured me, and one time they sold me paint thinner to clean the brushes, because they totally failed to inform me of that before I totally ruined the expensive brushes that they totally convinced me I needed the time I was there before.
ANYWAY, we did have fun, and the piano does look much better with a second coat. After the third coat, it should be ready to go! We're thinking we need to host a piano concert once it's done...
Hopefully we'll have pictures of the finished product soon! (Assuming Rick remembers how to put the piano back together...)
