{Better Remade} Rocking Chair

Warning: post is low on words, high on photos.  With a 7 month old, not only do I not have time for a wordy post, but I don’t have the head for it either!  Writers block :)

I think as soon as I found out Lucy was a going to be a girl, I brought my old rocking chair home from my parent’s house.  It had been sitting in storage for about 20-25 years, just waiting for a make over and for a new little book worm!Better Remade I Block painted rocking chaiI was a little rough as a child and broke off the arms, so first things first, patching and sanding was in order!

In retrospect, I would have done the gold last.  The tape kept taking off the metallic shine, so in the end, I had to tape off the cream and coral to repaint the gold band.Better Remade I Block painted rocking chaiHere she is coral, cream, and blue painters tape!
