I even played the mom/dad card with this one. I think it may have been may last waltz with the "ask dad, then ask mom" game. I knew exactly how this would play out.
Me: "Dad, do you care if I paint the rocking chair?"
Dad: " You know how I am. I believe in preservation."
Me: "Dad says he doesn't want me to paint the rocking chair, but I think it'll look so much better in the nursery with a little color."
Mom: "Oh my God! That chair would have been on the curb if you didn't take it."
Somewhere in the middle, lies the truth and outcome as well all know it.
So without further ado, here it is...Oh! One more thing. This is step one. I want to add color, texture and whimsy to this. I just need to figure out how, and what exactly it is that I want to do.
|Ahoy, Matey! Time to walk the plank|
|Lightly sand, prime, then paint|
|All primed! P.S. This chair took 2 cans of spray primer.|
|At home. I saw this color in the Spring **Valspar sample collection at Lowe's. |
It goes with our "Almond Branches" print by Van Gogh
