Hand painted mini rocking chair.





Hi everyone.
I just want to share a few pics of this adorable mini rocking chair that I gave a little shabby chic face lift. 
This chair was a birthday gift for a little dolly called Abigail who has her very own big girl room and I thought this would be adorable in it. 
I used Autentico eggshell in the shade Vanille and on the pink spindles I used a crown tester pot of baby pink. 
The chair needed three coats of paint as the shade Vanille doesn't have as good coverage as other shades I have used.
The bow moulding was from shabby.ie.




Blondie in the quality control department testing the chair. 
I got this chair off adverts.ie and highly recommend looking on your local second hand sites as these chairs can be very expensive. 


As this was going to be a present for a one year old I made sure to prime the chair for some extra adhesion to help stop the paint from chipping.
I used the autentico primer.






Whilst trying to take some pics Blondie decided to steal the show, she just cant resist a camera and thinks its time for posing. 

This was one of my fave upcycle paint jobs, especially that it was going to a little cutie who will hopefully get a lot of use out of it, even when she outgrows it she can use it for her dollies and it will add a touch of vintage flair to the room. 

Don't forget to tag me in your projects and leave the link to your blog in the comments section. 

Chat soon,
Catherine and Blondie.
