Deck ready!

I got this cool rocking chair at a sale for around 14 dollars. I just had to bring it home, you know about my chair addiction!After a real good all over scrubbing, I painted it white.
Then I got busy with the sand paper. I sanded where it would normally be worn.
I love where the wear and tear and the old yellow paint shows thru.
Then I added a walnut acrylic paint as a stain.
I can't wait to put it on the deck . I think it's a great addition to my wicker furniture.

I like the rocker. It would look good on our picnic pavilion with my wicker furniture too. I prefer the white paint, without the wear points. That's just me, though. I like the shiny new look :-)

Ohhh, Love it! You did a great job of antiquing it and it looks sooo comfortable. Now all you need is a glass of sweet tea, a warm day and a lot of free time.. :-)
