We found this awesome rocking chair a few months ago, on the same night we picked up this little side table.
It was a very successful evening for furniture rescues. We also found a set of four vinyl chairs which are patiently waiting for their makeover for an upcoming blog entry…
The former owners of this rocker were moving and we can only assume had no use for this so we picked it up and immediately went to work on making it over.
By immediately we of course mean it sat in our storage locker for a month or two, or four….
Nonetheless here is the surprisingly easy makeover for the little chair that could.
Side note this may be the first and last chair makeover as painting the rungs on this chair was just not very fun.
The hardest part was still recovering the seat, or rather pulling the old fabric off. Minor injuries may have been sustained pulling out the numerous staples on the seat of the chair but lesson learned: always use proper tools and non-slip surfaces when removing staples.
Choosing the fabric of the chair was easy, once we discovered the clearance section of Fabricland that is. Added bonus; since we fully overestimated the amount of fabric we would need there is lots of leftover for future projects!
With the help of our Dad’s staple gun we finished re-covering the seat and fitted it back into place.
The finished product is bright, cheerful and ready to rock on.
