Rock-a-bye Baby

 The nursery is in that - almost finished but just needs few final touches - stage and then the reveal!  One of those missing pieces was a chair of some sort for the late nights....then this rocker found us for 10 bucks at the local second-hand store- PERFECT!


















Alright, maybe a bit dated, faded, and not much left to the padding...not so comfortable! But, with paint on hand and a trip to the store for some fabric and foam.....and of course a hand staple gun....

It became this!

(ignore sleeping husband in background and pile of new clothes for the little one - Oma bought her five new coats, all for a dollar! Good deals...)




 Simple steps:
Remove seats from base and the material from the board, actually a pain in the butt with all the staples!
Cut foam to fit
Wrap new material around
Staple to the board and for looks you can also glue a piece of material to the back to cover up your mess.
Glue the seats back to the base and voila!!






 Now she looks oh so cozy in the nursery and with a pillow to be made to match, nice and comfy:)

Take a look at the Linky Parties to see other people's great project's this week too!! I'm all linked up:)
