Painted Oak Rocking Chair

Anyone have that one friend or relative that tries to pawn stuff on you that they no longer want but they actually don’t want to get rid of?

My person is my Mom. She’s always trying to give me stuff. I think it makes her feel better that she’s not really giving it away, but it’s going to good use.

Oak Rocking Chair

Her latest item was this rocking chair. She says she bought it 20 years ago because she wanted a really nice, solid rocking chair to rock her grandchildren. She got to rock her first grandchild, my nephew, in it since they live close to him.

But, when my son was born she wanted me to take it…I didn’t want a rocking chair…and said no. Well, she asked me again when my daughter was born to take it. I didn’t really need it, but I figured why not. But the deal is I get to makeover anything she gives me.

So the oak rocking chair got a makeover. I decided I wanted to put it our sunroom. So of course it had to be white. Nothing special, just white.

So out came my Homeright paint sprayer again and that was it! I seriously don’t know how I went without one of these for so long! It made painting my kitchen cabinets so much easier and now this chair.

The chair now fits in with our decor in the sunroom and my Mom can enjoy rocking her grandchildren when she visits!

It’s kinda crazy how much our sunroom has changed from when we bought the house! Take a look at what it looked like before here.

Hi, I found your website when researching Allure flooring resiliency in a sunroom as I'd like to install it in mine as well.

How is it holding up for you? The manufacturer doesn't recommend installing it in direct sunlight, but it seems like your floor is doing great! Do you have any UV-retarding coatings on sunroom windows, do you have curtains that you use during the day or you don't use anything and the floor is still looking good?

Great work on that chair, btw!

I have a similar chair from my mom. I have been debating what to do with it. Now I think I will refinish it. I am going to put it in my new office. Thanks!
