Found this rocking chair on craigslist for $15. I offered a cool $10 cash and carried it out to my van. It was super scratched up and smelled like smoke. Eww.
I took out the rattan on the arms, did a little French-country paint job, re-padded the seat and back, reupholstered with some great neutral Greek key-inspired fabric (from JoAnn's, of all places! I'm impressed!), and trimmed out the top with some French natural nailhead.
The plan is for this chair to find a home in the girls' room (to be completed before the end of 2010, hopefully). Anyway. There you have it.
