diamond in the rough?

Apparently, word has gotten out that I like cast off items. My neighbor Abbey rescued this rocker for me. I don't know. It's close. Diamond in the rough or too much work? It sure is pink!

I'm thinking I can strip and sand most of it. But, I'm thinking that paint isn't going to come off the cane bottom seat. What a shame. I think I'll refinish the body of it and then paint the seat black. It's really comfortable and hasn't left our living room since I carried it home. I am reserving the right to keep it, but I think after I finish it, I know the perfect person to give it a new home- or rather classroom (luckily I have a few months).

I think someone will love it. It will be a lot of work.

You could always recane it. Lots of work but I might be able to get you the supplies to do it.

Before you recane it which will be very expensive or very difficult, I would try liquid paint remover. Be sure to use in well vented area. It would be extra nice if the cane was natural. Whoever pained this should be shot!

Love always,
