Shabby Chic Rocking Chair

I found this sweet little rocking chair at the antique mall when one of the dealers was clearing out her stuff. She originally had it marked at $15 and when everything was at 50% off I couldn't resist.

I just fell in love with this carved back. It is just so feminine.

After a couple of coats of Krylon's Ballerina Slipper spray paint she is fit for a princess.

I just happened to have this soft paisley fabric to cover the seat.

A closer look at the back.  I hope someone likes her as much as I do.

Linking to the following parties:



  1. Love the chair--especially after you painted it pink.

  2. got this for $7.50!? LUCKY YOU!! Your up-do is precious!!

  3. what a great buy! You would of been crazy to pass it up, love the roses on it!
