When I got the rocking chair down from the loft I didn't fully realise just what memories it would evoke. The 3 year old immediately wanted to play on it and we sat on it together, gently rocking, her giggling at the motion, me being transported back in time, a smile at a distant memory. It has taken me a while to complete, it needed washing (scrubbing!) thoroughly, lightly sanding, a coat of primer and 2 coats of Craig and Rose acrylic eggshell in Morris Blue which went on beautifully smoothly. I had to do it in small stages as I didn't want "help" from mini me on this one, that girl loves to paint and I've lined up a couple of small projects just for her.
