Piano Applique

We picked up an old piano from the previous owners of our old house who got it for 100 dollars from a friend's grandmother.

 It's been around the block, literally. 

I love that it's old. It could use a good tuning, but I've been wanting to doll it up for some time now.  I thought about hiring someone to paint the front of it.
Then I got on YouTube and tried to learn how to paint, an idea that failed miserably.
 I contemplated modpodging fabric onto it, but was scared I would ruin it.
So , I moved the piano to the end of my project list... that is until my Sister, Lorna, came in town and inspired me to do this Piano Applique.

  Here's How:

Press fusible web (I used heat and bond lite) onto the wrong side of  a panel of fabric.
Cut out desired applique, peel off paper
Press with a hot iron directly onto piano/wall/furniture.

When you're tired of looking at it remove it with no damage to your furniture. 
(at least that's what I hear, I haven't tried removing it yet, because I simply love it.)

Wow, that is so funny, we moved to a townhouse years ago that had a piano in it, and the landlord asked if we wanted to keep it, I said Yes, thinking I would take lessons and learn to play..No way, you have to practice all the time!! I could not do it! I am so sorry we did not keep it now that I have time to learn and practice!
Piano looks great with the flowers on it!

Same work I do in my school notebooks and some of the textbooks. I really enjoying to do it. But I bought it from market, you save my money and now onwards I will make it by myself.

Um, okay HELLO! I freaking LOVE this idea! We re stained our piano and put a glossy coat (is that the right way to spell coat?)over it. I wonder if the fusible web would stick to it.... I think I shall try. LOVE your cute ideas!

This is such a great idea. My husband is going to think I'm insane when he walks into a room and I am ironing the wall :o) The thought of that makes me smile. Thanks for the inspiration and I love your piano!
