ACO and headed in for a quick peek. It was a busy weekend with people dropping off garage sale leftovers, and this rocker was perched on the porch out front. Price tag: $29.99. A few bumps and bruises, but a nice coat of paint would make it a beauty again. I also had a $20 credit I'd been saving up (they have a rewards program)...and then you got to dance for a discount. We unloaded a car full of donations and loaded up a rocker and few other things.
Once my honey got over the fact that I dropped off a bunch of junk just to bring something else home, I headed out to the garage to spray on a coat of primer. I found a few tutorials on rocking chairs, but this one inspired me to start collecting a whole set of them. One for everyone.
This one was finished in black satin from Valspar (at Lowe's). I brushed it on to make sure I was able to cover all the curves and tiny crevices that rockers have. It took two coats to cover, and I will seal it before it goes outside. For now, it makes a pretty cozy spot in the living room for book worms. :) What color should I paint the next one?
