This rocking chair was such fun to work on for two reasons! First, Shannon and I decided upon a custom green color that I loved mixing (1:1 Annie Sloan Versailles and Antibes Green). And secondly, Shannon was due with her third daughter and I was so excited to get this rocker painted for her before the baby arrived!
Shannon’s mother rocked her as a baby in this rocking chair. It’s a mid-1970’s relic. As Shannon describes… imagine an orange corduroy tie-on cushion set, along with the gold leafy embellishment on the top rail of this walnut rocker, living on a gold shag carpet in a yellow nursery!
Welcome to the world, baby Phoebe! And thank you for trusting me with this cherished piece of furniture, Shannon!
