If you've been following along, you know that I'm banishing the last remnants of dark pine from my life. I've had this rocker for thirty years. I think that's a long time to wait for a makeover, don't you agree?
I started with a light overall sanding with just a sanding sponge. Then I used two coats of General Finishes Buttermilk Yellow Milk Paint - no priming needed. And this comes already mixed in a can. It has a wonderful creamy consistency. It's not the powder that you mix with water.
I've used this color on a variety of projects and it's beautiful soft buttery yellow.
I distressed the edges lightly.
And finished up with two coats of Wipe-On Poly.
Oh, if only all painting projects could be so easy!
And this pretty yellow rocker has a temporary new home.
Did you already guess? She's in one of our rooms at the Decorator Show House. Here's a little peek at our reading corner.
After a flurry of activity, the house will be open and ready for tours on Friday. If you live in the area, hope you can come by for a visit!
