When I saw these 3 pieces for sale I couldn’t pass them up.
My original idea was to redo them in chalk paint as I do with just about every piece of wood furniture I come across.
But then I saw the rocking chair as it was unloaded from the trailer and I knew there was no way I could paint it.
This is a Boston rocker and over 125 years old.
This will look great in one of my spare bedrooms.
There is something about the bones of this chair that I felt the need to keep it in it’s original condition. It is almost as if I could feel it’s past.
The next off the trailer was this antique walnut oval parlour table 32W X 18D X 30H.
I can’t wait to get the brushes out and start on it.
This last piece reminded me of a piece of furniture I had in a cottage 30 years ago. It is an antique waterfall style buffet 30W X 17D X 46h. When I saw it I knew I wanted to refurbish it with chalk paint.
I can’t wait to start these but that will have to wait a while as I have others that I am working on.
