She sanded the chair down, and we primed it with Kilz spray primer. After the primer dried, we sanded the roughness off that was left by the primer. Then we painted the chair with white latex paint. When it dried, we started applying different colors of paint to different areas of the chair, and we stenciled her name on the top of the chair. We also Mod Podged scrapbook paper polka dots to the arms of the chair. When everything was dry, we sprayed the chair with a few coats of clear spray paint to protect the paint. She now has a cute rocking chair in her classroom!
Sadly, I didn't have my camera with me to take final pictures, so I used my cell phone. Please forgive the poor quality of the photos.
My cousin's new rocking chair is different from the rocking chair she found online, but this chair is HER, and she loves it! Plus, we had a lot of fun creating this "masterpiece" together. :)
