Y is for Yellow

Y is for yellow.

I think yellow makes a pretty good color for my rocking chair swing. At first it seemed rather strange to be painting my former rocking chair such a bright color, but I really like it when it's hanging out there on my tree.

The idea wasn't quite original (I found it on Pinterest), but I had the perfect chair just waiting in the barn attic. One of the rockers was broken off at the back leg, but it was otherwise in great condition. All it needed was a bit of disassembling, a coat or two of paint, and a little reassembling. And then of course someone to engineer a base and hang it in the tree for me.

  6. Love that color for your swing and what a great idea! Too bad we tossed some broken chairs years ago. This could have been a great summer project!

  7. It is quite lovely, and a good setting.
