Last spring when I was wanting to prepare for baby and decorate her room but we hadn’t moved yet, I kept myself busy by packing of course, but also by trying to go ahead and find and DIY some things for her room. Like this DIY chicken wire hair bow holder. Another thing I knew I wanted to find was a little rocking chair. I thought it would be so cute to go in her room and for her to grow up enjoying.
I came across this one on a facebook yard sale site for $10 and snatched it up.
The paint was in rough shape and definitely not my style but nothing that a little sanding and a new paint job couldn’t fix. Here it is after I sanded all the bubbled/rough paint on the seat smooth and had it ready to paint.

I already had my nursery mood board and colors all picked out so I grabbed a can of this Blush Pink Chalked paint from Rustoleum. And they even have Chalked spray paint now which I need to try – totally would have made painting all those chair rungs so much easier!
2 coats later and this is how it looked! This is just the sweetest light pink color!
I did decide to distress it just a little around the edges. I mean anything in a kids room is eventually going to get distressed so I may as well start the process .
And we finally moved, I gradually worked on a nursery and had the sweetest little room for it to go in! It looks so perfect in here with all the gray and white and just hints of pink.
And I have the sweetest little girl to sit in it. (And how in the world can she be so big already!? Time needs to slow down!)
I found probably my very favorite yard sale find of all times on Friday and it is already in the nursery – will show you later this week! Just a few more projects I am wrapping up and will show you those and then the final reveal!
