The Star

You know you have a problem when you buy something just because it's too good a deal to pass up, even though you have no idea what you're going to do with , or necessarily even want it! Such is the case with my friend Marie (thought I was talkin' bout myself, didn't you?).  And why I ended up with her still new-with-tags star.  It's good to have friends with this problem.  I've always wanted a star.  Not particularly this color however.  So out came the white paint and some sand paper.
After taking quite a few layers of white paint, I sanded the edges to give it a slightly aged and distressed look.    Bah, you can't even tell, can you!
It was exactly the thing for over my piano.  It would also be exactly the thing for on my  barn!  Hopefully Marie will find another one on clearance and not be able to resist the urge to buy and I'll inherit another one.  haha. 
By the way, been toying with the idea of painting my piano for a long time now, and finally decided not too.  HOWEVER, the bench needs something done.  I get a sliver in my booty every time I sit to play! Would it look ridiculous to have a white piano bench?  Please give me your opinions!

It's a Keeper


  1. Wouldn't paint it but you could go get some foam and cute cream or white fabric and add a cushion. That way it won't stick out so much from your piano and you won't get any more slivers.

  2. I would sand the top and paint just the top white...or black. Then polyeurothane to seal it and prevent any more booty slivers.
