Garden Rocker Update
Don't you love when you have a garage sale with friends?
I've found when I do - my house does not really get purged,
because we have too much fun trading for each others' junk!
Which is how I came to own this red garden rocker.
(It's fun to see a picture like this in August.
You can just feel the cold!)
I really liked it all weathered, but it did need a little attention to help protect it. I scraped it down really well, spray painted it Heirloom White, and glued some wooden knobs to the pipe ends. I chose to spray paint it, because I wanted it to still look a bit weathered.
For a final touch,
I added an iron embellishment to dress it up a bit.
It sits right outside my large bay window and is what I see everyday when I work at my computer. It kind of makes me feel like I'm working in the Secret Garden. It's also a lovely place to sit and watch bees, or to stop and smell the roses!
