I do believe I am off my rocker! Today I am sharing our porch rockers painted with chalkworthy paint. Never heard of it did you? That’s because it is brand spanking new. Sister company to Giani paints. Back around 3-4 years ago my husband and I used Giani granite paint on our bathroom vanity. It was amazing and till this day looks good as new. Everyone who sees the vanity always comments on it. Some even think it is granite, while others say it looks like beautiful pottery.

This project here is still to date one of my most popular on pinterest. Without fail every day it is in my top ten viewed posts. That is pretty amazing considering it was so long ago. I really love Giani and we have had a great working relationship. Recently, they reached out and asked if I would be interested in trying their new chalkworthy paint.
It just so happens I have been thinking about painting my rockers on the porch. I just kept putting it off because truthfully painting rockers is not that fun of a job. It’s tedious and a little back breaking to get in all the nooks and crannies. I thought I have nothing to lose. These rockers are 10 years old and this would be my third paint job.
They were originally Oak. Then I painted them black, then they went to Red. They have been in their current state of red for about 5 years.
You may recall the red rockers from my summer porch I recently shared.
These are what they looked like in black. In fact, I remember when I painted these to red, my post title was blood sweat and tears. I swore I would never do them again HA!
Hayride is a warm shade of yellow reminiscent of autumn harvests. Bonfires, hayrides, cozy cabins and splashes of sunshine are all thoughts provoked from this bright, essential, antiquing color.
* No priming or removing of old wax, paint or varnish! Sounded perfect to me.
I actually read the instructions before I used the paint. It came with an adorable little packet with different techniques and suggestions on how to’s for a particular look you were going for.
I was going for the standard vintage look.
I still don’t like painting rockers and this will probably be my last time. I did love the ease of the paint. It covered nicely, went on smooth, and looks beautiful after the finishing clear wax that came with my kit.
I opted NOT to distress these chairs. I love how clean and smooth they looked and felt no need to distress them.
I can always change my mind for another look down the road.
I think the rockers will compliment all four seasons.
Now it’s time to get busy and start decorating for Fall. Even if it was 90 degrees on the porch today while I was painting these. Thank goodness for my fan!
Chalkworthy can also be used on upholstery, cabinets, floors and outdoor projects.
Head on over and check out their site. I absolutely love it. Great projects and tutorials as well.
