Nursery Projects: Rocking Chair

Ok, what’s with the glider obsession? Maybe I’m weird- and I must be, considering what follows- but I just don’t understand why you would want a glider over a nice rocking chair. Obviously, based on my shopping attempts, I’m in the minority here.

Even in SoCal, where you can find just about anything without going far at all, I wasn’t able to find a decent chair. So… Off to Craigslist! I found this guy for $35. It just needed some TLC (that ugly gold floral bit HAD to go!).

It looks ivory... When you get close, you can see that it actually was white once upon a time.

A 40 minute drive, some sandpaper, 3 cans of spray paint, and we have a much more modern looking chair. Plus, hubby did most of the work on it- score!
