Recycle, Repurpose, Relax!!!

I know you are asking yourself, "How many chairs did she paint?" The answer is "I haven't finished yet, so I don't really know!!"  Chairs are one of my favorite pieces to Repurpose.
This rocking chair was begging for a beach scene. The primer was added first. Then a coat of latex blue paint. Once the blue was dry, I loaded a dry stiff brush with white paint and removed the excess with a papertowel, then quickly dry brushed over the blue, to give it a saltwashed look.

I painted the beach scene with Folk Art paints, and sealed it with a spray on sealer. I applied 3 coats for durability. Now it is the perfect recycled, repurposed chair, just waiting for me to relax!!
