Restyle :: Music Holder

When we got our piano it also came with this old, brassy music holder. I love it because it keeps music off of the top of the piano where it can look kind of messy but I didn't love the colour. Easy fix: pass the spray paint!

Ahh, much better. I used a orange/gold colour and I love the way it looks with the blue walls. I think it would be really awesome to paint the piano a lighter version of the wall colour one day but we will see how ambitious I get on that one.

The new look for the music holder is also Pinny approved. Isn't she looking so much older?! In the last few weeks she is really looking more like a cat instead of a kitten. I told her not to grow up but she is not a good listener.

Today my main goal is to move as little as possible. Yesterday I pruned our grapevines and apparently that was way too intense for my pregnant body to handle. I think I did too much reaching and bending. My stomach muscles are so incredibly sore today that it hurts to do anything. I am just going to rest and try to let them get over their traumatic experience of working yesterday.

On a positive note it is so nice out again today! Hooray!



  1. I love that little pop of color + your kitty is so adorable!! xo

  2. Love the makeover! It looks awesome, and it totally looks like something you'd buy at Urban Outfitters for like, $50+. The color is perfect. :)

  3. Whoa, I really love the color you chose! And Penny does look a lot older, it makes me miss my Theo being all tiny! Now he's huge and doesn't need me anymore! ;(

  4. OH my goodness! My mom had one of these things so gawdy & gold...but shoot, I wanna go find one now & spray paint the heck out of it! Great idea! My dad was going to refinish our piano since it was a gross green color.....well, he started it when I was probably like 12ish's still sitting in our living room half finished & I'm 25! But you can probably do it better lol

  5. Spray painting it was such a good idea, and I love the colour you chose!

  6. Brilliant!! I'm totally stealing this idea. I never know what to do with the music pieces I'm working on so they always end up all over the piano, looking messy. This solution is perfect!

  7. I always forget that spray paint is like magic. That rack turned out great. I even admired it at your place last week but didn't realize that you had painted it.

  8. Dream Theater? Really? I really start to love this blog! And a nice idea to paint it!
