Glider facelift

It is no secret that we like reusing things and getting them secondhand. So when my friend Catherine offered us her glider that she no longer needed, we jumped at it. It is a very high quality chair, but we wanted it to match everything in the room so we sanded it down and gave it a few new coats of paint. It took a while due to all the hard to reach places, but we are thrilled with how it turned out.

just got some semi-gloss low VOC basic white paint from home depot. the guy said we wouldn't have to shellac it so that sounded good to us!
