How do you restore the black keys on a piano. The black color is completely faded at the ends of the keys.

On most pianos, the black keys are made of ebony wood. All wood needs to be kept moisturized. I recommend that you try a good quality oil for wood on one of the keys. If the white is still there, try Zap Wood Restorer, available on the web.

If you have numbered and removed the faded black piano keys already, what is wrong with spray painting them? What would be the best spray paint to use?

I would call a piano dealer and ask if they could recommend something. After that, just go with your gut and your wallet.
