This chair is beautiful to me. As a child I would sit rocking as I looked out at the water in from our lakefront cabin. I would hold my hand just beneath my eyes to block out the cabin’s porch and the beach beyond so I could see only the water. That made it easy to pretend that I was sitting on the deck of a cruise ship bound for distant lands.
Seriously, that’s what I did!
After years of being bounced from home to home and spending some time on the deck of our former lake house in Washington I was almost ready to take it off to the dump.
Almost . . . but not quite.
Along came Mr. OTN to the rescue! My dear hubby has been removing old cane and glue from the channels, as well as removing the rusted screws that had broken off inside the chairs arms and bleaching away the black mold. Now he’s ready to tackle the job of re-caning. What a gift of love.
I’ve decided that my old rocker deserves some color and this is where you, the most brilliant readers in the world, come in.
We will be using the rocker on the screened porch which has neutral colored furniture and blue accents so I’d like to paint it in a blue tone.
These are the colors I’m considering:
- Duck Egg
- Greek Blue
- A random color of Behr clearance paint
The color of my sample board is close to the color of the caning, which we aren’t painting, so you can see what the contrast would look like. The colors here are a tad bit washed out but I had to brighten them up a lot so you could see the true color.
So what do you think? What’s your favorite, one, two, three or four? We hope to get to the painting this weekend so I’d absolutely love to hear your opinion!
Blessings to you,
