This is such a SUPER SIMPLE makeover, I'm almost ashamed to post it here.
if you'd like to know how THIS
was transformed from THIS
in one simple step, click 'read more' below.
Well, actually it took 2 simple steps to bring this lil lady back to life.
You'll notice at the top of the chair, the reed is broken.
Soooo, guess what I did??? Yelp. I took my twig nippers or pruners or whatever you call those things you use in the yard, and I just cut all the reed even with the top of the rocker. YES, I DID!!!
Also, one of the arms had a repair and it was a different color from the OLD, so I just decided to PAINT her.
And, let me give you a tip on spray paint, if you haven't used spray paint before. Always go for the more expensive. Several times in the past, I've thought I'd save money by buying the cheaper brands. And, what happens? You end up buying 5 times more cans than if you'd bought the good stuff first.
So, after only two cans of KRYLON Indoor/Outdoor spray paint in a satin finish, this is what she looked like.........and it only took a few minutes.
I sanded just a bit around the edges.....
and then I added her to my room display in the shop.
What do you think?
A pair of pruners and two cans of paint later, and I think this little Victorian rocker ROCKS!!!
