Mandala's aren't just for adults anymore...

Share it Please

2 blog posts in one week! Look at me go! Ha ha ha!  I'm back today with this sweet and funky toddler's rocking chair :) This chair was a little tired looking and needed a little help from some wood glue but otherwise was in pristine condition and it was free!

I was inspired by this chair's classic design and opted to create a unisex  rocker that would fit with any one's decor. I am the first to admit that I adore colour however, sometimes the colours that toddler furniture comes in doesn't always look great sitting in your lovingly decorated room ;)

So, what's classic and fit's with everything? Country Chic Paint's Liquorice of course! I almost left it solid black, but I wanted to play with their Pocket Watch Metallic Cream again, so... Black + Gold = Win!

I found a simple mandala online and created a stencil with it using my Cameo Silhouette and some vinyl. I applied the vinyl to the chair and then added a few layers of Pocket Watch to create solid design. It was magical peeling away the stencil to see the stunning details!. The metallic cream works really well for stencils and the effect against the Liquorice paint is gorgeous!

I then added some Country Chic Antiquing Wax to finish it up and buffed it to a shine. I can't really tell you how much I adore this chair! This chair almost makes me wish that I has tots running around again. Almost ;)
