LABOR OF LOVE


 
IM ON A SPECIAL MISSION TO DELIVER MY
MOM A CHRISTMAS PRESENT WHICH I KNOW
IS LATE BUT I FINALLY GOT IT DONE.
SHE WANTED ME TO REDO A ROCKING CHAIR
FOR HER AS SHE JUST GOT HER PATIO FINISHED.

SO I FOUND A NICE ROCKING CHAIR AT THE
THRIFT STORE, NICE AND STURDY..

HERE IS THE BEFORE...


AND HERE IS THE AFTER. I HOPE MY
MOM LOVES HER AS MUCH AS I DO...








DO YOU THINK SHE WILL LIKE HER?
THIS IS A LIGHTER TURQUOISE THAN
I USUALLY USE. I USED VALSPAR COZUMEL, THOUGHT I'D TRY IT..

  1. I think she will LOVE it! That is my absolute favorite color. I have a rocking chair sitting in my garage that I need to get to...you gave me a little motivation to get going. Thanks!

  3. Sistah! She will love it and if not, send it to me! I need seating for my porch and have been looking for the typical "outdoor" furniture. BUT now I am going to find a nice solid rocker, which I see at thrift stores all the time, and am painting it a fun bright color. Thanks for the idea!
