I am addicted to painting chairs!
I found this rocker at a local antique shop.
The style really pleases me, and it is very low to the ground...
like me...a good thing ; )
It took me a year to decide to pull the rockers off.
I had been so undecided as to what to do with it, I had some crazy ideas,
and some not so crazy ideas...lol!
Then when I started painting with ASCP,
Here she is with her first two coats of Old White.
Already she is looking much better!
I love this part!
At this point I considered whether or not to use a glaze,
or if I wanted to apply clear or dark wax.
You can kinda play around and test a little area to get an idea.
Deciding upon clear wax and no glaze for now,
I distressed and then sealed with clear wax,
her bows and boughs look quite different.
I am still thinking of a little dark wax for depth.
This is something I love about ASCP,
You can always do more to your piece.
How do you like her?
With her new skirt she was all ready for our first tea outdoors.
I love how low she sits on the ground.
I think her blank oval back is begging for something?
...maybe a crown transfer, or an initial, or a vintage bee transfer?
I am thinking.... Or maybe a special pillow for extra comfort?
So many possibilities!
I am thrilled with how she looks now.
She was lovely before,
but as I worked on her I found she was in much worse shape than I thought,
so I didn't feel so sad about painting her wood surface.
Annie Sloan's chalk paints really were a pleasure to work with.
I have some more chairs to share with you soon...
in my favorite color....
Are you having some creative fun this summer?
And if it is heading into fall/winter where you are,
what are you doing creatively for your season?
Thank you so much for visiting!
I love knowing you were here.
