This beautiful rocking chair is over 50 years old, but still has good bones. It’s also super comfortable, so when my friend asked me to give it a makeover, I couldn’t say no.
I sanded the arms and base, then stained them a deep chocolate called Kona, by Rustoleum. I added the beautiful antique gold nail-head trim to give it some pizzazz, but still keep it masculine. Lastly, a clear coat over the wood, then some leather conditioner for the back and seat cushion. Now is doesn’t look a day over 30!
I love the way the dark chocolate brown looks against the caramel leather. I better stop typing, I’m making myself hungry for a sundae!
