Painted Children's Rocker
A lot of people love the look of painted furniture and may want to try a quick project of their own. I picked up this children's rocker at our church rummage sale.
The slatted seats are not my favorite painting surface because it's hard to paint a complete image on it. But it is great for striping colors and being whimsical.
I sanded the piece first.
Then, I spray primed the entire rocker.
Next, I base coated the rocker white and then chose my color palette. I decided to paint this rocker in girly colors. Lots of pinks and oranges!
The stripes and accent colors usually take a couple coats and look great against the white background.
Adding flowers and painted designs finishes off the look.
And remember to always protect your painted furniture with a clear sealer to make your painting more durable.
This piece is sold, so some little girl is enjoying it right now! Thanks for visiting!
