Well I had this urge to paint something and I had 2 ratty old child's rocking chairs that were really dingy looking . So I was messing around and painted one of them. Still have the other to do though. Anyway so here is the one I have gotten done. Still need to seal it though. Any suggestions on what is a good sealer to use?

Adorable!  I would use a polyurethane finish to protect that paint -- your paint job is beautiful and one any child would cherish into adulthood.  I think you can get it in a spray, but I don't know if it would be as protective as a paint on finish.  Awesome!

Cute swirleys on the seat! - I too would use polyurethane in brush form, it does seal a lot better than the spray.

thanks everyone. I will get some polyurethane for it. I definelty think 3 or 4 coats is a good idea especially with kids using it. Thanks!
