I took this photo of the painted rocking chairs in our back yard that overlooks Bryson City. I painted our old rocking chairs over the past few days. I picked out a range of colors that I thought would blend the chairs into the landscape but also leave them with a little character. You can click the photo for a larger photo:
The chairs were in pretty bad condition before being painted…I bought them all from an old motel that was going out of business for $5-$10 each. Brett had to put about 20 screws in each one to pull them back together. If I had to do it over again I wouldn’t use spray paint on these chairs. The wood was too porous and old. I probably need a few cans of spray paint on each one to completely protect them from the elements. I think next time around I’ll try and match the paint color using an exterior paint that can be brushed on. Just for reference these colors go amazing together:
The rocking chair photo is from my Instagram account @lilblueboo where you can follow along with many more projects that I haven’t caught up to posting here yet!
