Easter Tea Party

This year I decided to have an Easter Tea party. :-) I haven't ever decorated for Easter until now. But everything goes so well with the colours in my house, that I really should have! Haha Nathanael, Teddy and Teena partying together. ;-)

Nathanael went a little wild with the Easter stickers. ha

Teddy and Caleb listen while Melissa and Teena chat. :-)

Rocking Chair Makeover

I am joining in on the "Before and After" party at the Thrifty Decor Chick's blog. This is my first "bloggie" party, so I'm quite excited. Haha I couldn't get her fancy button thing to work ( I'm not so great at technology. Ha) So, this link will have to do.

Anyhow, here is a rocking chair that I bought a few months ago at a second hand furniture shop. I needed it badly at the time to nurse my newborn baby boy, so I made the cushion for it before painting it. It worked well, but I didn't care for the finish, especially not with all my cream and white furniture in the family/dining room.

So, I gave it a rough coat of white paint (Dulux Once brand) and added a decal. The paint job is far from perfect, but I got the whole thing done during one of Teddy's afternoon naps, and that was the important thing to me. And now, I think the chair is way prettier. And imperfections are very "shabby chic", anyway, right? Haha :-)

Hope you are enjoying looking at everyone's befores and afters! I always love it.
