See this rocking chair. Craig just looked at it and said, "Why, Mom!"
Well, It's not much to look at. A little on the wobbly side and the cushion old fashioned and very faded. So Craig's question was really, "What are you going to do with that hideous thing."
Well, first I took off the cushions.
There, that's better already! Then Larry re-glued one of the arms to make the chair stronger. Next he sanded it lightly and added coat after coat after coat of white spray paint.
Much better. Now, if I was going to keep this in my home, I probably would have recovered the cushions in a toile fabric. But, this chair is going to be a "reading chair" in my classroom. So, I picked this colorful upholstery fabric to make any child look forward to having a turn in the reading chair.
Oops, I need to add the ties to the back cushions to make it hang correctly. I have another white chair in the classroom that is covered in a fish fabric (last year's theme) that I will recover with this fabric. I also have a little chest that is royal blue with fish fabric on the lid. That will be recovered with this plaid fabric also.
Be sure to visit Susan's blog at Between Naps on the Porch to see metamorphosis in progress. You've got to see the hybrid car she is featuring. Nope, that's all I'm going to say. You'll have to drop by to see for yourself.
Take Care and God Bless!
