PAINTING A WHIMSICAL & FUN DESIGN ON AN OLD ROCKING CHAIR

     Several years ago, Gayle asked me to paint her rocking chair.  I can't remember, but I think it was dark stained wood.  She asked me to paint the chair "something fun".  She suggested that I paint it, kind of, MacKenzie-Childsie, just fun.


She had several red, green and gold accessories in this room, so those are the colors I used.



Believe me!! all of this detail was NOT easy!!

But, it was fun when it was over/finished!


Today, when I was working at Gayle's house, I got to see it again.  It was fun seeing it in her family room.  The colors looked so good.  And, she showed me a sample of some "whimsical" fabric.  She's thinking about having a cushion made for it.
You can paint a "funky" chair, too!  Just decide which colors you want to use and then, use your imagination!!
