Looks like a good project you have there!

There's something about the weathered look that attracts me.

Good luck on your project and hope we get to see some finished photos!

I have an old rocker like that, only it's green. Love the weathered textures you've captured before you start your project.

Thanks for linking up to YSB today, Trisha. I really appreciate it! :)

The weathered look is really nice. Good that you photographed it before you make it all pretty and smooth again.

Old rockers are wonderful. We've got a green one on our front porch that is so nice just to sit down and relax in. Good luck with your project. It'll be well worth it.

I love this because I had no idea what it was when I first saw it! What a beautiful capture. :)

It does look pretty up close, I love old chairs like this one. I would be tempted to smooth out the rough spots and leave it as is. But then I know it will be beautiful when repainted.

I love peeling old paint and I love painting. Is that a rocking chair, it's so pretty, I'd love to have a rocking chair in fact I've been hinting about how much I'd loev one for years but no luck so far.

Hey Trish, nice to meet you and thanks for 'dropping' by my blog yesterday.
Nice old 'rocker' you have there and great shots. Funny how much character it has before the re-paint! Something to say about aging maybe!

No, no, no! I like it old and peeling! :D
