Vintage Pressed Back Rocking Chair

Cream Chalk Paint with dark wax.

This is a vintage pressed back rocking chair from the early 1900's. The finish was in poor condition making it a good candidate for a fresh painted finish.

Rocking chair before.

I painted the rocking chair in Cream Chalk Paint and applied a light coat of dark wax.  The dark wax isn't overpowering and the piece still has a light and airy feel.
