Just finished a little makeover on this cute wooden
child's rocker that I found at a thrift store
This is what I started with....lovely huh?
After I stripped the fabric off the seat, I saw it was particle board...ugh.
I wasn't going to put a cushion on it so
I covered the edges with molding that
I attached with wood glue and finishing nails.
I spray painted the whole thing black and decided on a simple pattern
of white numbers on the black background.
I mentioned before when I was painting
how I don't really use stencils.
I prefer to go for it by hand and see what happens...
'cause I'm all risk taking like that haha
I used white chalk and lightly drew on the numbers
to get the placement down before I started to paint
I painted the numbers with white acrylic paint
and gave the seat a clear coat for protection
My painting is not perfect, but I like the "painterly" effect
and you really don't notice the tiny imperfections when looking at the overall piece....
that's what I'm telling myself anyway ;)
Awww, it's cute!
My 12 yo son, who weighs probably as much
as I do asked if he could sit in it...uh, NO!
