Completed Project!

One day shortly after we were married, my husband surprised me on my return home from work. . . with this. It was a thrift store bargain, and he knew that I had wanted a rocking chair for quite some time.
It had very stained blue cushions. When a neighbor got rid of their broken rocking chair, we acquired the green cushions.







However, the foot stool still looked like this.


Stains galore.

For awhile, I have been wanting to buy some fabric and recover the cushions.

Last week, my trip to Wal-Mart turned up some navy homespun for 2 dollars/yd.

So, on Tuesday, after my fever broke, I tackled this project.Here is the completed rocker. It looks ten times better.

And it even matches our curtains.

  6. Wow it looks so wonderful! It makes me think of how many times I've passed up a chair that I probably could have done something with.
