rocking chair makeover.

i finished this little project at the beginning of the week, along with a bunch of baby-nursery furniture. i will show photos of the rest of the furniture later (i took old, dinged-up furniture from knotty wood, to a clean, lightly-distressed finish with white paint). this rocking chair was in my client's family for a while, and now her little girl is going to use it. isn't it amazing how changing the color of the wood takes that green-upholstered seat from looking oh-so-70's to really current?

  2. It's really a trip how ugly a lot of the 70's wood furniture is. Though, we say that now and who knows... In 20 years that stuff could be back in style. The chair definitely looks a lot more stylish white and green.

  3. Just wanted to say hi!! I've been reading your blog for a few months now and am inspired. I can now see the hidden potential in some otherwise dated garage sale pieces. Thanks!

  7. Cute, but I don't understand your obsession with distressing everything.

  8. beth - in this case, we were matching furniture that was in the client's house already. the room this piece was going into already had distressed furniture. also, generally, i am doing what the client asks me to do. i don't always distress things.
