Rocking Chair Makeover

I found a rocking chair at the thrift store about six months ago and it has been sitting in our living room patiently waiting for a makeover. I finally got to it on Sunday.

Here is the chair before. It’s a nice chair and the fabric is cute, but it just isn’t my style and didn’t match a thing in the house. I added an Iron Orchid Designs Decor Mould on the top and painted the whole thing gray. Once the paint was dry, I distressed it in certain spots to add the look of age and use.

I wiped away the dust and applied antiquing glaze over the entire thing to add beautiful depth to the color.

Finally, I recovered the seat with some striped ticking fabric that I had on hand. I like it much better now! What do you think?
