Children’s Rocking Chair Refinish

Children’s Rocking Chair Refinish

Happy Saturday, Friends! Check out this ADORABLE Children’s Rocking Chair that we recently finished for the Aleman family. They initially purchased this piece for $5.00 at a GARAGE SALE! They weren’t too thrilled about the colors, but it is solid wood and in good condition, and they saw some major POTENTIAL! And with a little TLC, we knew we could have her back to her original, BEAUTIFUL self in NO TIME!

Our clients chose to go with a Dark Walnut Stain in order to match several of the other pieces that we have already refinished for them. In this case, it proved to be a VERY GOOD IDEA that they chose to go with a dark stain, as opposed to a lighter stain. This is because of the fact that the purple paint on the chair had actually stained the light wood underneath. And NO MATTER how HARD we tried, or how much paint stripper we applied, it was DEAD SET that it was NOT coming off! ( Sometimes paint can be hard-headed like that. 😉 )

Thanks again, Ivonne and Carlos! We hope that your daughter gets some good use out of her NEW rocker!

Here are our BEFORE and AFTER pictures of this piece…
