Rocking Chair

Dear friends! I am so excited to share with you this sweet chairĀ I painted for my friend Sue!

Sue saw the potential on this baby when she saw it at the Olde Farmhouse Vintage Fair end of June!

Sue loves color, so she wanted it painted blue. First I gave it two coats of shellac, to avoid the problem I had with my mom’s bed… Then I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Old White.

I gave it a nice coat of ASCP Duck Egg Blue. I distressed a bit, to show the white underneath.

This time instead of Annie Sloan clear wax, I tried
Cece Caldwell Satin Finish. It is a hard finish that you apply with a foam brush. The look and feel is pretty much the same as the wax, but I did not have to buff afterwards! I gave it two coats. Now it needs to cure for a week.

Here is a close up:

And here without the throw:

I wish I was back into sewing, to sew a beautiful pillow for it!

My next post will be my peachy dessert, step-by-step with instructions!!!

I am so excited to share this project at:
