New project alert!

I've been dying to try some furniture refinishing lately, especially after seeing this awesome server (found here).




So... last week I picked up this rocking chair at a garage sale for $5. That means even if it's totally destroyed during my refinishing attempts I'll still be able to afford to feed my family. Bonus! :) 






My rocker is oversized and has strong lines so I want to stick with a neutral paint color instead of picking a more "delicate" color (like lime green or lemon yellow).


I always do best with a picture example and found this lovely redo to use as my inspiration piece (found here).






Now I just have to wait until both Annie, my partner in crime, and I have free time (so probably in the next two or three years!).


Any votes for a particular color?
