Cait from Little City Farmhouse took this once-chippy rocking chair and gave it a beautiful new finish with Ever After, Cheesecake, and Clear Coat!

Painting furniture for kid’s rooms is a lot of fun! Usually it involves a lot of colour, which generally doesn’t happen in the rest of your house if you’re anything like me! I was given this rocking chair and it desperately needed some tlc. The paint was literally flaking off everywhere!

I prepped the chair by scraping all the flaking paint off and then giving it a good wipedown and prepped it by sanding it lightly to even out the surface.

I wanted to give this chair a little bit of personality, so I painted the top and bottom different colours. I started by painting the top half of the chair in Ever After, a pretty muted lilac shade from Country Chic Paint’s newest limited edition colour line. When it was dry I painted the bottom in Cheesecake, a lovely cream.

When the whole chair was dry, I sanded it smooth and distressed it lightly. For added protection and sheen, I gave the chair two coats of Clear Coat.

From chippy to pretty with just a couple coats of paint! Perfect for a girl’s room!

Cait {Little City Farmhouse}

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
