Hi, my name is Clara and I have fallen off the craft-a-day wagon.
Yes, I admit it.
Instead of inspiring creativity in my children today I melted a few brain cells playing with Sam and his new Super Mario Wii game
all most…who am I kidding ALL day. But…but…but wait we did conquer like 3….oh my stop me now.
Don’t throw stones at me yet….we did squeeze in some reading this morning although I am not really sure any of that will count at this point.
Well, since I have no kid friendly craft to share with you I thought I’d share the sweet little rocking chair I finished for Cate’s room. Sound good?
Ok. The girl loooves to rock. So I found this UGLY rocking chair this Summer, it was priced right and it did have potential so I got it! When I picked it up I told the lady I was going to paint it and she was like…really??! Agh! She didn’t like it, had never used it, and was selling it but she was aggravated I was going to paint it. Make sense to you? Oh well, I know painted furniture is not for everyone but for Miss Cate it needed to be done.
Solid wood but kind of bulky and well…bulky.
Not much I could actually do about that but I did try to slim her down a bit with some Annie Sloan Pure White. Then a good ole sandpaperin’ and clear wax to seal ‘er up.
I recovered the cushion with some outdoor fabric I have had forever and made a simple pillow for the back.
Baby Cake is one happy girl with her own resting spot. Crazy hair and all…
Happy Wednesday and I am jumping back on the wagon today!
