New here - Rocking Chair Transformation

Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum, but really enjoying it and looking forward to meeting you all. I just posted a few pics in the Tole Painting Gallery, and it dawned on me that this one should go here.

I picked this rocker up at a garage sale for next to nothing years ago, and finally decided to do something with it. Here is the only before pic I have, and it's an "in progress" pic. Notice the water stains on the back of it, which is why I think they sold it.

Oh my gosh! That's wonderful! I wish I could paint things in such an expert looking way but it just ain't gonna happen! LOL

By the way, welcome to the TtoT forum. We're glad to have you.

- Thank you, Lydia1959. Really, I'm just a beginner on the painting.

- Thanks, Des (and HI again). I'm not an accomplished painter by any means. All I did was watch Donna Dewberry on TV and picked up a few of her books. I practiced on cardboard boxes. I think my trash men must have been scratching their heads when they saw all those painted boxes at the curb. lol!

- Hi Sal. Thanks for your kind words. I put stuff in the Tole Painting Gallery here:

I've got one more post to do to the Gallery over on the Tole board when I get a round tuit. :-) I didn't post them here because they weren't exactly T2T. Hard to know whether to post in crafts, or tole, or here, ya know?

I hope you will all post lots of pics of things you've done! I'm really eager to see them. I *LOVE* T2T projects, don't you? They're the best!

Price?

I'm probably going to sell that chair because I just don't have room for it. But what should I ask for it if I do?
