Rocking chair makeover

Well I've finished painting the Rocker....to see the before picture go to last post....I really enjoyed doing this and am really pleased with it.


My one dilema is whether to put it on Ebay starting price 99p or £4.99 which is the price I paid for it




Not really alot to say about this really , basically what you see is what you get...I'll let the pictures do the talking.









I've never sold anything on Ebay before so any tips gratefully received wish me luck xx

It's absolutely gorgeous, and if I didn't have a rocker already, I'd have loved it. I think it will do well - put the max photos they allow, so people get a good look, and a couple of closeups of the painting. I hope it fetches lots. x

Hmmm I'm having my doubts now as when I purchased this Rocker the lady had 2 and they both went for £4-99 so within collecting point of here there doesn't seem to be anyone wanting one. I've seen others go for around £20 but not round here....cheapskates lol

That is absolutely stunning Laj - you are unbelievably talented. I would make sure you put shabby chic in the title of your listing - if only to get more people clicking on it :)

It is truly beautiful Lajoni, I would love it :)

When I didn't know I wanted a rocker they were everywhere and now I know I want a rocker I can't find one anywhere, may have to look up yours ;-)

It is utterly gorgeous!

Re selling on ebay. Fit as many words phrases into the title shabby chic/farmhouse/hand painted etc

Good luck!

It's absolutely beautiful - I love those roses.

Is there a shabby chic type shop/outlet near you where you might get more for it?
