Sweet and Shabby Rocking Chair

I found this small rocking chair that was in perfect condition.  It was just so boring in its current state and I wanted to do something fun with it.

Since it was small, I thought it would be perfect for a girl's room.  Of course I chose pink paint.

It needed a soft, comfy seat.  I wanted to upholster the seat, but due to technical difficulties, I decided to just make a seat cover.

This pink and white toile was just too sweet to pass up.  This was actually made from a shower curtain that I found at a thrift store.  I've had a lot of trouble finding fabric lately, so I started looking for window treatments, sheets, napkins, and clothing that can be used for home dec projects.

I just love this rocker.  It's going to my booth and I hope some little (or big) girl falls in love with it, too.

I'll be joining some parties so see my side bar for all the links.

  6. I think the slipcover brings a lot of charm to the chair and soften the look even more. Love the paint too and the fact the chair looks like a chair and not so much like a clunky rocking chair.

  7. I love the paint finish on that chair. I also really enjoyed your post on the faux french linen. I reposted it on my blog, Cedar Hill Ranch, so go take a look.
