We are crazy

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...)

Wow, that is going to look amazing! But to be completely honest with you...when I saw the title "we are crazy" I so totally thought you had a special announcement :-)

10:30 at night is the only time parents of young children can seem to get anything accomplished. I bet it will look beautiful once you are finished. good luck!
