Music is an Outburst of the Soul...

I have been going absolutely crazy for the last 2 days!! Our internet quit working & the phone company could not get anyone out here to look at it until today. We ended up needing a new modem & we are up and running again!! woohoo :) I have had this project done since Wednesday with no way to get it onto my blog. So, I am super excited to finally get to share this with you today!!!!

We bought our daughter an old Werner Chicago upright piano for Christmas & the sellers threw in this bench. It didn't match the piano, but I knew it had potential!!

It was pretty rough looking.

I was thinking I had some yellow paint somewhere that I would paint it with, but couldn't find it. So, since I was able to mix my own turquoise paint last time, I thought I would try my luck with that again :)

I did not do any sanding, just a good coat of primer to start with. In my living room, where I like to do my projects in the winter ;) You can see by all the different paint colors on this lovely tablecloth that I have done this before.
Here it is. I love the color ♥♥
I used my cricut to make a stencil for the quote my daughter chose. "music is an outburst of the soul."
I think it adds a nice pop of color to the dark wood of the piano.

I am definitely ready to get back into the swing of things now that Christmas is over :)
