make me pretty – old rockerJanuary 20, 2015
I’ve had this old rocking chair in my garage for a long time. I imagined that it was going to be a very involved re-do but it actually ended up being super fast.
This chair is old and the wood had an interesting texture to it, almost like leather, that I didn’t want to loose so I just did one coat of paint and then sanded some of it off.
I took off the crazy, falling apart seat and cut a new base out of plywood with my new best friend, the jigsaw. I used a super thick piece of foam and covered it with this pretty fabric, which was actually a Dwell Studio table cloth that I got on clearance at Target a year or two ago.
