She made me do it.
- She chose an "oops" paint from the paint store.
No, that's not my hand on the drill. My DH held it so I could take the picture.
He bought me a little handy dandy drill attachment that does a great job mixing paint just like my kitchen immersion blender.
- We sanded the rocking chair just a bit to make sure there was nothing on it that would prevent a good bond.
Typically there doesn't have to be much prep work for chalky paints, but this chair sat in a store where lots of touching was going on. Ya never know…
- I suggested Jillian paint the seat cover since it was a used chair and the seat as stapled right to the chair.
She's looking for a seat cushion to go with it, but says her teens sit on it as is (they are youth directors).

Using an old t'shirt, we just applied the wax for protection and give it a nice finish.
The Minwax is a paste, which made it a bit tricky to apply.
