Rocker is in Primer stage
My husband says he found this guy sitting on the rocker, reduced to bones because he's been waiting that long for this chair to be finished. Funny guy. The chair is in the primer stage and I ran out of primer. I used the primer in spray bomb format for a smoother coverage. It's Zinsser brand primer that covers anything coming through your top coat as it blocks whatever is underneath. There were a few splotches of paint left on the chair seat that I could not get off. Because this is an outdoor chair, I'm not that fussy over it being perfect and it's going to have a chair cushion on top of it anyways. So now that I have a second can of primer, I'll be painting the underside and some of the places on the chair that were missed. I'm going to really appreciate it when this chair gets finished. The final coat of paint will be the Tremclad brand that I will apply with a small roller. Probably paint a couple of coats, we'll see how it pans out. Hopefully get to it this weekend to finish it off. As for the antique chair, it has half a coat of stain on it so far. I'm getting there...seems to be a long drawn out process. Can't wait to have them done so I can start on my next project!
