Old Doesn't Mean Old With SK

This cracked old rocker found it's way to me,
  • old doesn t mean old with sk
Lots of dings and broken pieces. But the pretty carving was intact.

I fine sanded the entire piece after the glue was dry. I sanded finely abd cleaned. I brushed the entire rocker with a light red custom paint. I let it dry and sanded and dusted.

The colors I have chosen made me happy. I painted each section twice with sanding between coats.

I sanded one last time, dusted and clear paste wax. Dry and buff and repeat.

    Very pretty. You have me thinking about the rocking chair I have in my bedroom that is almost 60 years old. Was my hubbys when he was born and then given to him with the first born and we still have it. It's really rickety and I don't use it to sit

      Take the chance. Fix it up, make it smile. It will have a future of many smiles and memories.
      Thank Toni.

      Hi Joy, Thanks for visiting. I love how she turned out. Tons of time is required. At least this one took a lot of time.
      Enjoy your chair. They deserve the love.
