I love going to auction houses to see what treasures there are. I came across this ugly looking rocking chair but I was sure I could transform it. Old rocking chairs are hard to find and this one definitely was in the need of a makeover. First things first – out with the old coverings and the old finishing on the wood. A good sand then a white wash and lacquer on top to create a shabby chic style.
I have used material that I sourced from Bev’s Remnants. What a fantastic store – you never come out empty handed.
I love the soft blue/ green and the old fashioned velvet on the back and sides.

Love your work – so nice when a great piece of furniture can get a new life like this. Would be nice if us humans could have that done too!
