Rocking Chairs


I promise I haven’t been ignoring my blogging duties, it’s just that we’ve been on a long break from updating. I guess you kinda get burnt out after a while. There hasn’t been anything to report, so that’s why I’ve been away.

Today Jeff took me by our local hardware store because I’ve been wanting some rocking chairs for our front porch. We got two for $60! They aren’t anything special, but hey they were only $30 a piece and now we have somewhere to sit outside.

The chairs are weathered, so I will have to clean them up and paint or stain them. I honestly don’t know what I want to do, that is why I’m asking for your help. I’m pretty sure that I’m going to paint the front screen door a dark teal color. The lantern is a oil-rubbed bronze and so will be the railing. The actual front door will probably be a natural warm wood. Also, don’t forget that Jeff is building me this:


I can’t decide if I want to just stain the rocking chairs and the daybed swing to match, or do something funky with the rocking chairs. Right now my front porch is looking pretty bland, not to mention dirty. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

This is a story of two lovebirds who got in a little over their heads, or at times it feels that way, remodeling a little home built in the 1940's. Our journey has bumps and twists, ups and downs, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Please join us and our two poodles as we flip this old house and work towards the adoption of our first child!

  1. I like the idea of doing something bright and funky, but I love color. The good thing with paint is if you don't like it you could always redo them where as stain will be a little harder to change. Have fun, I bet they will turn out super cute!

  2. I'm with Christy. I like the idea of something bright. Maybe even multiple colors.

  3. Bright colors are always fun!I'm your newest follower, I hope you'll check out my page too :)

  4. I think I've decided to paint them a bright apple green, and then make crisp white cushions from a vintage tablecloth for the seats.
