Child's Rocking Chair, Last Furniture For A While....

This adorable child's rocker has been very fun to paint...

Funny thing about rockers, though, they rock. They move. Its was constantly surprising me when the thing moved as I tried to paint it....Hilarious.

I learned to cope.

The rocker is vintage. It has a damaged, no longer functioning music box on the back. The client asked me to leave it, and not paint it, I also left the vintage "Stork" label unpainted (not shown here. I should get a picture of that!)







This piece marks the end of a long furniture painting jag.
Next up: 20 yards plus of fabric with little fish, and dragonflies, for a client....I'm always pretty psyched by the variety my work brings me...no boredom here ever!!! Stay tuned!

Beautiful chairs!!
Would you mind sharing what type of paint you use please? I'm about to repaint a rocking horse and wanted to go for a mexican/ gypsy vibe but not sure of the best paint...
Thanks!
