Rocking Chair Makeover

One of my old college friends called me to see if I could paint an old family rocking chair for her sister's baby shower gift. I LOVE traditions and keepsakes, so I thought this was a great idea!
I think her sister will really appreciate the gift.

The rocking chair had a lot of old varnish on it, so it took me quite a while to get it all sanded down. There were still a few places that I could get as perfect as I would've liked to...little nooks and crannies are hard to reach.
She gave me the shower invitations for help with color. The invitations were antiqued teal, brown and yellow with white polkas...ADORABLE! She also asked me to add some pink since it was a girl. I think it turned out really cute. I hope she loves it!
