Duck Egg Rocking Chairs

Posted by on Sep 10, 2013 in backyard, chalk paint | 13 comments

One day, I’m going to have a screened door on my house…

…preferably on my screened in porch.

Because, I love the sound those doors make when they open…

…and especially when they close.

There’s something so “homey” about that sound.

So, until I have a screen door of my own,

I get the chance to decorate a screened porch for a good friend. 🙂

We’ve recently added a swing,

and several pieces of furniture.

All with comfort in mind.

These chairs were already here.

But after a coat of Annie Sloan Duck Egg paint,

decorating with ladders

I think they look just perfect.

Life to the full!

  1. so pretty! you know i always love a good duck egg project! the pillows are the perfect touch!

  2. Beautiful…such a relaxing look… Great job.,

  3. Very pretty, sure love that soft color. How fun to do somebody else’s porch. The porch is a great size. Think I’d live on it in spring and fall. Love me a screened in porch with that door that goes splat when it closes. Put a radio out there and a fan maybe, could even sleep out there.
    It’s been raining here for 2 days and maybe more to come, welcome to the lake and mud bog. Poor dog and cat have been going to crazy being cooped up in house. They did get to go out more today between showers. How come the dogs feet get so muddy but cat’s are cleaner than a whistle? Hummmm. Tommy hates to have his feet cleaned. They’re webbed also so the mud gets right in there between his toes and fur, what a mess. He gets this look on his face like he’s so picked on when we’re cleaning his feet. Happy week

  4. Beautiful job ! Love your porch !

  5. LOVE a screened-in porch! It truly is like having an extra room. This one is huge and your friend is so lucky to have you to decorate it so beautifully! I could spend hours and hours rocking away on those chairs with a good book.

  6. I would love a screened in porch too. You’re right…there’s nothing like the sound of one of those doors closing. 🙂 I have yet to use Annie Sloan paint, but keep hearing how wonderful it is. The chairs look fabulous!

  7. The rocking chairs are so pretty… luv the duck egg blue, and the pillows.
    The entire porch is so nice.

  8. I love it, Melissa! So perfect for fall! And that duck egg blue is stunning! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  10. Oh, I just love screened porches! The rocking chairs and swing are my favorite part. I’m visiting from the It’s Overflowing link party.

  11. Very Nice Post. Grate Rocking Chairs …. This information will increase more and more people to know about all Rocking Chairs. I use to do buy online Rocking Chairs as its time saving.

  12. Hi Melissa! Did you dilute your Annie Sloan duck egg blue paint with any of the Annie Sloan shades of white? Or were these rockers done with 100% duck egg blue? I’m about to redo a set of 4 dining chairs and I’m drawn to duck egg blue, but I’m afraid of it being too bright.

  13. I think the skin swing is a nice contrast with the brick wall, and the light cayn chairs contrast well with the green land, so I think they are perfect as they are? If anything, I would maybe paint the tables a nice pop of color, like red or green, but they look nice as is.
