A few weeks ago my dad offered me a wooden rocking chair that belonged to my grandmother. I was beyond excited to have it in my home.... but the first words out of my mouth were "can I paint it"? As you can see, the rocker is that traditional black lacquered with gold painted details and it doesn't exactly fit in with the rest of my decor.
With my dad's permission (lol) I sanded, primed and carefully applied coats of antique white paint. (Free from Glidden!!) A little poly and a few pillows is all it needed to be complete!
I hope one day it finds a home in a nursery, but until then it'll be perfect in our bedroom for Mr O' to sit on while putting on his shoes.... since I always have clothes on the bench that was originally for this purpose. Oh well.
