Today I’ll be sharing a small, but wonderful project I completed on a pair of very well loved and used rocking chairs. Here’s the before shot. The paint was flaking off so I gave this chair a very good sanding, and then hosed it off with water. Then, I let it sit and dry completely in the sun. Then I opened up my Ohio Cupboard Blue and got to work. I love this creamy paint!
I ended up doing two coats on this rocker, mainly because the wood was so dry it was just SOAKING UP the paint. And now, for the big reveal: Beautiful! The finish is smooth and matte and as you can see the color dries darker than it appears in the can. I never get tired of working with Old Village Paint, it is so thick and creamy, and this acrylic had a soap and water clean up! Laney, the owner, wanted me to remind you that if you send in a photo (firstname.lastname@example.org) of anything YOU’VE painted with Old Village Paint, you’ll be entered to win a Kindle Fire in a drawing July 1st. I have a Kindle and it is the perfect summer reading tool! Happy painting (and reading)! -Jenny
