Porch rocking chairs – Veranda is the feature that gives the visitor the first impression of your home. If you have a large enough porch, you should take advantage of the space by adding a seating area. Many rocking chairs have already broken. They are inherited from the family, or picked up in the tag sale. They may have years of use left in them, but they need a good layer of color. A painted rocker can be a piece of art for a little more than the time it takes to paint it. The children’s rockers are almost always painted with something cute but full-sized chairs are legal change for brush and imagination as well.
For a large country kitchen or a covered porch, a white porch rocking chairs with some yellow and brown hens or a rope stenciled on the headrest is perfect. A sense of humor would inspire a painted egg or two on the seat. A sun room or conservatory receives a yellow rocker with exploding red and hibiscus orange and green plants with purple flowers twisted over arms and spiders. An early American salon can welcome a navy blue rocker with an American eagle stenciled over the back and lined in gold color. A guesthouse porch would look homely with a laundered blue-blue rocker, “aged” with a few spots of cracked glaze and painted with a series of little ladybugs up the leg, over one arm and over the back.
A child’s painted porch rocking chairs that you can not find in every big box store is one you paint yourself. If against failure, there are artists everywhere swinging colorful brushes for custom highchairs. The magic princess gets a fairy chair in pale petals pink with scattered flowers, juvenile butterflies and little fairies all over. On the back of the chair, on both sides, a narrow pair of wings. The intrepid pirate-teddy-bear-prince-Prince Charming becomes whole blue and white surf, dotted with sea horses, stars sea, tropical fish, sea turtles and a toothy, gripping shark on the seat. A mixed composite of the children becomes circus chairs in bright colors, each spider painted another shade, stripes on the legs, spirals on arms, stars over the back and center ring on the seat.
