Ashley needed a rocking chair for Evan's nursery.........................and I searched for a long time before I found this.
All the other rocking chairs looked slightly flimsy - this one screamed " big comfy rocking chair " to me and when the ad read " We used this for our children " I knew I'd found THE one !
But it needed a makeover -
I started by painting it Graphite from ANNIE SLOAN CHALK PAINT ™
Next I added some 3 inch foam to the seat to make it thicker and to hide the indentation of previous bums LOL ! ( it also felt way too low - adding 3 inches of foam gave the seat a little height )
Ashley's favorite pattern is Chevron - so I bought some grey and white fabric to reupholster it with and then lightly sanded all the edges.................and then finished it all off by personalizing it with his name
It's quite a big chair ( it may end up in the living room instead of his nursery )
But it's incredibly comfy !
But for now we'll get it delivered so that Mama can test it out!
A little bit of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint ™
A little bit of Chevron fabric
And a whole lotta love.................
The thought crossed my mind that IF they have another one and IF it's a girl - and IF they don't mind too much - I'd like them to call her EVA - then I could just replace the N with a heart or something LOL
