~Rocking Chair~

This was my mom's rocking chair, a neighbor had given it to her and I believe it was painted a dusty rose, after mom passed we divided her things and Michele took the rocker. Sydney was only 1 week old then and Michele painted it pale blue for the nursery, after it was in Samantha room. I saw it a couple weeks ago and asked her if she wanted me to take it home and paint it black so that she could use it in the family room. This is how it turned out, after it was done I thought it would look good here but no I'll give it back:) I couldn't resist putting a pillow on it and the geraniums below! So neat what a can of spray paint can do:)
I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!


  1. It does look very nice in black, but then again what doesn't. I have my moms rocker too. It was a valentines gift from my Dad.

  2. Looks great, Rondell! That was nice of you to do it for her....and then give it back! :)

    It love it painted black! I just love spray paint!


  3. I keep black spray paint on hand--never know when I will need it!! The chair looks great. Have a nice weekend. Julie

  4. Love the rocker!! Too bad you can't keep it, huh?? Sweet of you to fix it up...

  5. Wow you did an awesome job, I wouldnt want to give it back either, lol.... maybe they will let you keep it :) You give me inspiration to get my butt in gear and start shopping around at flea markets for treasures!

  6. How sweet to have something from family. I agree - it looks great in black!

  7. I totally love a nice black painted piece so it looks awesome to me :)

    I often debate whether or not I should paint my glider rocker black. I think I would like it more....

    It's so nice of you to jazz it up for your DD :)

  8. I just love a good can of paint! Especially black! The makeover looks so great! Michele is a lucky gal!

  9. Oh, I love it! I need to replace a chair in my LR and after seeing a black rocking chair in CS magazine, I thought hmmmm..maybe that's what I need. Your daughter's is very nice, how nice of you to paint it for her.
    Isn't spray paint wonderful? I don't know why I didn't use it before. I just bought 5 cans yesterday at HD and I couldn't believe all the colour choices available now.

    ps I'm just catching up on my blog reading. Are you taking anew direction in your decor? I noticed the changes to the bathroom.
    I love anything vintage or vintage inspired.

    Have a great day! :)

  10. I have my Grandmas rocking chair in my living room. It is upholstered with the most hideous floral fabric, but I can't bring myself to recover it. It does not have a wood seat... it has wires and a frame with foam for the cushion. I just cover mine with a quilt. That chair looks great black.


  11. I love this chair in black. It is just beautiful. To think of it's journey through the years, the many babies it has helped to sleep,the lazy days out on the porch...it just boggles the mind. Treasures like this never go out of style.

  12. Rondell,

    Check out my blog....I have something for you!
