This is the very chair my husband Steven was rocked in as a baby. We were fortunate enough to have is passed on to us in preparation for the child we hope to adopt one day. It was in great condition, just needed an update.
The bottom cushion was stapled and wrapped around the front of the chair and a nailhead detail was also added. I took to task with removing it all and getting some practice with some wood filler.
I found the fabric at Ikea– its a fun, origami inspired print, while the paint is a soft cream colour (Cozy Cottage) in a self-priming matte finish. (Mmmmm… self-priming… my new favourite!).
All done… now how ’bout that nursery?!
