Turning Old Into New

Hello friends, this old rocking chair has been in my family for over 50 years. My mom recently told me she stripped it of years and layers of paint. Took her hours. The seat needs some fixing. I just can't part with this old chair.

Some white paint, a little distressing and the chair has new life! The saying across the top is
"De tendre "which is french for "unwind".

Love this french pillow which was bought at a Renningers market.

Sometimes all you need is some left over paint and a piece of furniture you already have to create a fresh new look! So simple.

Enjoy the day! xoxo


  1. Lovely! And, by the way, I have three of the cutest labels - - thank you!! I am trying to think of the perfect way to reciprocate. I'm just not as creative as you are so it may take me a little while :)

  2. Very pretty! I love white and a new paint is an easy way to change a look!
