Rocking Chair..

Here is a rocking chair that my friend gave to me last year. It has been wainting patiently in my basement to be redone. I used the vasoline technique on this and I'm not quite sure about it. Maybe I went a bit overboard with it. I used an orange-yellow paint that I have as the main color. I first put some black on it so that you could see it when I wiped the vasoline off. I had to sand it down quite a bit because I didn't really like the way it looked. I'm still not sure about it but I like the color. And please forgive the pictures as they were taken with my cell phone.
