Happy Thursday, lovely friends! Today I have a quick little makeover for y’all.
A few months ago my favorite thrift store near my house had two small rocking chairs for only $5 each. I always pick up children’s rockers when I see them because they always sell quickly.
I shared the first one back in January. You can see that one HERE. I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
Today I’m sharing chair #2:
However I ran out of paint and so there it sat in our garage…for several months awaiting its big finish. (My HomeRight shelter is awesome at holding several things to paint at once!)
I finally gave it another couple of coats that it needed with a brush and then decided to add just a pop of color to it:
Can you see the color?
Green! I never use green around here but I had a sample pot of this pretty green in our paint hoard. I used this color in Brennan’s nursery to go along with his monkey theme and I had purchased a sample pot later for some touch-ups. This is the perfect green for a wall…so soft. It’s called Grass Cloth by Behr.
His nursery was so cute!
These props were from his nursery.
The blanket is special since it was made by one of my dear friends. Isn’t it so sweet?
To paint the stripes, I just taped off every other slat on the seat with FrogTape for delicate surfaces…
I sanded very lightly all over except for the green parts, then sealed with Rustoleum clear matte spray. I wouldn’t use it on a large furniture piece because it might end up streaky, but for smaller pieces with lots of parts, it works great.
I’ll be back on Tuesday sharing how I gave this stool makeover #2:
UPDATE: See how I freshened up this little stool HERE now!
Have a fantastic weekend! 🙂
