Rocking Chair Refinished

Mike decided to refinish the red rocking chair first since it’s a smaller piece of furniture than the dresser. The finish is a combination of one coat of Minwax's Ebony and two coats Bombay Mahogany. I love the way it turned out. The finish is a dark espresso with a hint of red that really shines in sunlight. It looks really dark in the pictures, but I wanted to photograph it in the nursery instead of outside. We went with a glossy finish to make the chair extra wipeable and durable - I have a feeling this chair is going to need it!

Now I just need to get a cushion and we’ll be ready to rock - literally!
