This rocking chair one of my clients dropped off last week. She usually has me paint her items black, so that's the direction I thought we were going with this cute piece.
She had seen an idea thanks to Martha Stewart to paint the chair a deep purple.
I have to admit, I was skeptical at first. I have had an aversion to the color purple, (not the movie, but the actual shade) since 7th grade when I wore the color EVERY day for a solid year. Ahhh, the 80's....Good times. Good times.
I can't even remember where I picked up this chair. I really liked the detail on the back and the chunky legs of it. I immediately pictured it white with a 'shabby chic' kind of treatment.
