Before & After: Rocking Chair Revamp

Remember that rocking chair I thrifted last week? Here it is in a lovely shade of avocado! I had every intention of painting it a sunshiny orange-yellow when I went to Lowe’s, but when I saw this color I couldn’t resist. It’s really similar to the shade we painted our critter/computer room, which I’ll have to give you a better look at soon since we’ve added a drawing table to the space.

I think the chair would look cute with a grey and white, striped cushion to match the nearby IKEA rug, but for now we just have our bunny pillow resting on it.

When I was browsing my old “pins” on Pinterest recently, I noticed I had favorited a photo of an avocado-colored rocking chair a while ago. It must have had a subconscious influence on my decision to select this paint color, but I had no recollection of it when I was spray painting the chair this past weekend. Also, my friend Mandy recommended “grellow” in a comment, which I believe this would be classified as! I thought I was being random by choosing this color, but I guess not!

For you fellow Pinterest lovers, have you noticed the site influencing your lifestyle in any way? The site definitely inspires me on a weekly basis (like this photo, which motivated me to paint the chalkboard door in our kitchen). Oh, and in case you were wondering, I just threw in a mopey Betty White photo because I feel like there’s been a lack of Miss BW in posts as of late! She’s happier than she looks, I promise!
