There’s nothing like relaxing at the end of the day this time of year, warmed by a fire in the woodstove, rocking the time away with a hot cup of tea, a good book, and a cozy blanket. Autumn in Canada means days of exhilarating beauty followed by times of drab, dreary rainclouds that may decide to let it snow instead.
I just finished adding some flair to a rocking chair and its matching footstool. The Upper Canada Green is the perfect colour for comfort…it just invites you to sit and let the cares of the world pass by.
I recovered the footstool with some corduroy fabric, then painted it with Upper Canada. Because of the fabric’s original maroon colour, it turned out darker than the chair, but with a nice contrast.
Come and see it in person! Try out the rocker and see if you’d like to take it home.
