A Tale of Two Chairs.

Someone needs to stop me from buying projects.

The rocking chair is really old, I think. The nails look almost homemade. It’s stripped down to its bare wood, and the it needs a whole new seat. I have no idea what to do with it. The blue chair is really small — a child’s chair, I think. I just couldn’t resist the detailing on it. It’s got like ten layers of paint on it, though, so I think I’ll have to strip it prior to painting because yet another layer of paint will really play havoc with the cool details.

I just don’t have the time or energy for the work they both need!

Shannon The natural wood on the back part of the rocking chair looks great! Is it in good enough shape to just keep it natural and put a clear coat?

I love how petite the rocking chair looks compared to the huge ones we see today!
