This simple diy Rocking Chair Makeover using chalk paint was so easy. From rustic to beachy in a few short hours. What a great furniture transformation.

Remember when I showed you THIS before picture of our porch. This sad rustic rocking chair had seen better days. It’s finish was wearing off & I was getting splinters when I would sit in it. Fortunately we did a full front porch makeover & so now I sit in comfort. But I still love the rocking chair & wanted to use it elsewhere. I just didn’t want to have to sand it all down & re-stain it. Knowing what I do about chalk paint, I knew it would be the perfect product to help fix this poor chair.
After convincing the hubs that his rocking chair would be better off with some paint, we picked a color & I contacted my friends at Deco Art & told them my plans. They sent me what I needed & I got to work.
I taped off the the woven portion of the chair & started painting- starting with all areas I could reach with my brush while it was up on the sawhorses.
Then once it was dry on that side, I worked on the remaining portions. Then flipped it back to add the varnish.
We added Never Wet to the seat area to protect it as it will be on the back porch & no longer protected from the weather.
I so love how it turned out!!! It went from old & rustic to fresh & beachy!!
Perfect for our home!
