How to Update an Old Rocking Chair with Chalk Paint and Cushions
I find old country style wood items at Goodwill San Antonio all the time! Remember when I restyled this old shelf? These items always sell for cheap, and I’m not sure why people pass them up. They’re solid wood and sturdy, and with a little chalk paint you can make them look modern again.
Step one: Wipe the chair clean and remove dust. Paint with two applications of Chalky Finish paint.
Step two: Cut the Project Foam to fit the seat pad. Since my chair had cut outs, I also traced and cut out heart shapes.
Step three: Cut the fabric to fit the foam, and sew the edges. To save time with the cushion, I simply wrapped it like a present and stitched the ends down.
Add the cushions to the rocking chair. You could glue them in place, but since my daughter will be playing with this I left them removable so she could take them off if she likes. She loves to rock her little stuffed animals in their chair!
