First, I would love to welcome my new readers!! Please leave comments so I can get to know my audience! I would love to hear from you!
Several months ago, my grandfather purchased a cherry red rocking chair for my Mere at a flea market.
The chair is toddler-sized and in wonderful condition overall.
The chair had some peeling and chipping paint, which didn't bother the kiddos at all.
I was trying to let the imperfections grow on me, but the Type A side of me began to take over....and a rocking redo began!
I scraped off any of the paint that I could.
The paint that was on the chair wasn't thickly coated, so I sanded the remainder of the chair to smooth everything out. This process actually took away a great deal of excess paint as well!
I let Meredith choose a new color for the chair. I was hoping for her to pick red (to make the repair a lot easier on me), but instead she chose PINK!
We purchased the paint from my favorite blue store - Valspar brand, Satin Spray Paint.
The entire can gave me two coats for the chair. I went slowly, spraying in sections and letting dry before continuing to ensure even coverage.
The spray paint was amazingly easy to use. I love the Valspar paint way more than the other store brands you can purchase in any craft section. The even, smooth coverage was easier to achieve.
