Wooden rocking chair upcycle – progression photos

Hi fellow followers 😊 My latest blog post is progression photos of a wooden rocking chair, upcycled for the Children’s Air Ambulance cafe. Hope you enjoy! Cheers!

This project has been the bane of my life for the last couple of weeks, haha, it’s the chair that doesn’t want to be sanded! I tried clean spirit and a scourer, sandpaper, both my mouse and orbital sander, paint spripper, you name it. I then used a primer/undercoat, but made the mistake of putting too much on, too thick. I’ve never used this before, so ended up trying to sand it back again. Thankfully, ‘frenchie’ furniture paint is fab and hides a multitude of sins. I painted two coats, and finished with a matt lacquer. I purchased a yellow tassled cushion from dunelm as a donation, to perfect the look. The yellow blends in with the cafes colour theme. What a nightmare, I’m happy to see the last of it, haha! What do you think to the finished project?

I’m really pleased how it has turned out, I think thankfully it looks quite nice, the grey and yellow 😊

I’m really excited to share with you my new refurbish project, which should be finished this week hopefully. Let’s say, it’s very pink, hehe. It’s my favourite so far, I love it.

So yes, please keep a look out. Thank you very much, Lauren xx
