You decide... (But I will tell you that my husband is definitely on the side of lunatic)
I have this white rocking chair that I've been wanting to rehab for a while. My husband bought it for me for my first Mother's Day. I love it but it's definitely seen better days and I have a perfect spot for it in the new house.
So what was I doing yesterday? Was I packing the rest of my dishes? Cleaning out the "catch-all" desk? Making sure my family has clean britches? Well yes, I was doing those things but I was also spray painting a rocking chair. I have a major problem prioritizing.
Just to be clear, all of those things were done with the assistance of my dear mother. And by "assistance" I mean that she worked her tail off while I did really important things like painted and ate chocolate. Thanks Mom!
In my defense, it was perfect spray painting weather. It was warm with absolutely no wind. We live on top of a hill and that NEVER happens. So I dragged the chair out into the yard and got to work.
Some of you have asked me how I decide which color primer to use - black, grey or white. This is a perfect example of why I sometimes use black. I could have used any color primer since I was painting the chair black. But black primer under black paint is soooooo much more forgiving to my quick paint jobs. I wanted to paint the underside of the chair too but if I miss a few spots with the paint no one will notice because of the black primer.
Here is the finished product!
So give me your opinion on the wicker stool. I want to use it as a little side table with the rocker. Should I paint it black to match the chair or should I use a fun color. The chair is going on the back porch. What do you think?
