Over the past two years we have hunted and found rocking chairs for friends (including ourselves!) at least six times. Our friend group has definitely hit the parenting band-wagon. There are a lot of new options out there, but we wanted rocking chairs that could add some character and history to our nurseries.
Here's the one I found for my baby girl's room. It was a vintage yellow beauty in a sea of more current used furniture. I liked the yellow, but the fabric had some stains and wear, so I decided to have it reupholstered. The wood arms also needed some polishing up, so we handled that too. Also, what is the two-button thing about?
I went crazy on patterns in the rest of my room, so I chose a simple gray fabric for the rocking chair. The amazing Janie from our upholstery repair department worked her magic, and, voila, a chair that would provide hours of soothing comfort for two tired parents and their tiny babe. It's the perfect fit in our bohemian modern nursery!
