It has taken me a while to complete, it needed washing (scrubbing!) thoroughly, lightly sanding, a coat of primer and 2 coats of Craig and Rose acrylic eggshell in Morris Blue which went on beautifully smoothly. I had to do it in small stages as I didn't want "help" from mini me on this one, that girl loves to paint and I've lined up a couple of small projects just for her.
I added a pop of colour just for fun with some Habitat Hibiscus Pink, but I foresee changing up the colours of the spindles and even re-painting the whole chair again, the colour possibilities are endless, but for now it blends in beautifully into my new bedroom decor. I'll be making up some new cushions especially for it too but for now I shall just sling whatever cushions I have and rock!
It wasn't the easiest of items to paint with all its nooks and crannies but I shall get hours of pleasure rocking and remembering another time and the baby boy who still has my heart.
