Meet Lucy, the rocker. Lucy was left next to the dumpster about a month ago, and she just got around to getting a makeover.
I didn't take a before picture, which I regret, but here is a picture of her in the middle of being sanded. She was painted an ugly burnt sienna color. I'm not sure if the previous owner's bought her like that, or if they painted her...but, she was ugly. There was no natural wood grain showing through the paint, just a flat brown. So I painted her white, in a dry brush style, so make her feel more farmhouse style.
And now she feels pretty.
I pulled some the the green and aqua from the vintage fabric I used for the cushion, and painted the ribbed detail on the sides.
She's not the most comfortable rocker, but for free, I'll gladly sit in it.
