My sister-in-law had an old upholstered rocker that she was getting rid of and asked if I would be interested. At first glance the rocker seemed like she needed lots of love, the pattern was out of date and the the fabric was starting to rip. But, with a little love I knew that the shape was great, the structure was solid, and it was very comfy. Plus, it was on rockers which would be perfect for a babe, and the real selling point?? It was free! And after looking into upholstered rockers like these…
that retail from $750-$1300, free was good.
So here she is before her makeover….
The shape is great!
And here’s a sneak peek of her now in our bedroom…
Okay, that’s your teaser:)
Doesn’t look too much different from the $1000 one does it?? I slipped her in white twill, and m little secret is that I love using IKEA white curtains for the fabric. It seems to lay nicer than duck cloth you can buy at Jo-anns, and it ends up being just as cheap, if not cheaper. I buy the grommet drapes. I added a little flirty skirt as well since our room is feeling a little masculine these days:) I did the ottoman awhile back but she fits well with the rocker.
I’ve got a bunch more pics to show you of our somewhat “remodeled” bedroom….which now includes a crib! Yay!! and if you didn’t notice the newest stump addition to the family, I’ll give you one more look. She’s my favorite yet:)
