Redo on Dylan's rocker

christmascandyMay 11, 2012

I showed pictures of the rocker I painted for Dylan for Christmas, but I was not happy with the corners. I had done it at 1 AM when I was really tired and it just didn't look like I wanted it to look.

So....I repainted the corners and like it much better now. Dylan hasn't really said anything about it, although she is "talking" a lot these days. We just can't understand her yet, LOL.

Before:

After redo:

Close up:

I'm much happier with it now, although Dylan probably wouldn't have cared one way or the other.

TTFN,

Candy

it looks wonderful.
I'm sure Dylan loves it too.
she is a lucky baby.
Gosh babies change so quickly, don't they?
I can't believe she's "talking" already.

Candy...you did such a beautiful job on this little
chair. Dylan is a lucky little girl to have such a
talented GMA!
BTW...did you sign your name and put the date under the
chair? Whenever DH - I or the GKids make anything that's what we do
as a keepsake of who did it and when!

The rocker is beautiful. I agree...you should sign it on the bottom. I have a footstool that is signed on the bottom with my Father's name and the year 1926 when he was in Jr. High School. That makes it all the more precious to me. Marylee

Candy, the roses you added to Dylan's chair finish it off beutifully. I love the little princess pillow too. SWEET.....

The back of both Dylan's and Cody's rockers have the year on them.

Good idea to sign the bottom.

Candy, another masterpiece. You did a fantastic job on Dylans chair. Definately sign it on the bottom, and you could also write a little personal message that would mean so much to them as they grow older. It is BEAUTIFUL!!!!

I ask Grayson, my little 2 and a half year old darling GS the other day what he wanted us to do that day, Guess what he said??? Put up a "Tristmas Tree" Looks like I may have one Grandchild who loves Christmas as much as I do. Nothing could please me more. Janet

Janet, that is just precious. I hope you keep a record of cute things he says. I write mine on my calendars, as my oldest DD makes me a photo calendar every year with cute pictures of the kids for the month from the previous year. Needless to say, I keep all the calendars. I also buy each DGK a Christmas ornament every year with a date.

I think it is just fabulous that you have another Christmas lover in the family.

TTFN,
Candy

C-U-T-E!! Love the larger flowers at the corners, but the chair was so pretty to begin with. What a great grandma you are!

I second what the others said...it was lovely to begin with, but the larger flowers really enhanced it.

Your grandkids are sooooo lucky. Not only a grandmother who is beautiful and sweet, but so darn talented. The fact you are literally MAKING memories, someday to be heirlooms, is so amazing to me. (not many do that these days I'm afraid.) I can picture Dylan sitting her dolls in it someday, and perhaps her own daughters doing the same. What a PRICELESS gift you've given her.

hugs, Karen
