Blue Rocker

Phew, it's been a busy month. We've had guests 3 weekends out of 4, with my parents just leaving today. We also babysat for our nephews Saturday/Sunday - the cousins have so much fun together, it made the less than productive weekend all worth while. 

With practically every spare moment we have going toward the dining room project, and our busy schedule as of late, I only managed to finish off one tiny project this weekend.  

I finally got around to getting a coat {or two} of paint on this long neglected rocking chair. 

I guess long neglected might be a bit of an exaggeration. We received the chair 3 years ago as a gift and it was hate at first sight for me. The pink and green was ok, but the sparkles were just not for me. I knew I wanted to paint it, but I just never had a reason. 

Welcome to my reason. The basement family room. Our remodeled media stand and new TV are leading the way. 

When I was shooting the media stand, I staged it out with one of the kids play table chairs, which made me think of the rocking chair.  

A couple of coats of navy spray paint later, I'm loving the pop of color in this dark corner. The only think I'm not loving is how hard these pictures were to take and how badly they came out. The high gloss paint isn't helping... making it look like a fairly uneven paint job :(

In other news, I just had to share this picture of Baby E on her 1st birthday. I think the cupcake kind of scared her. She didn't really like it either, not even the icing. A child that doesn't like sweets - not sure she's mine!

Check out that nostril flair after her first bite. Definitely not a fan. 

A great weekend, despite the lack of projects.
