Mini Size Rocking Chair

     My mister sweetly watched the little lady for me for a few hours Saturday so I could go "junking". (That means hitting up all the local garage sales and my favorite thrift store) Among my loot I carted home was this sweet little rocking chair. It cost me a grand total of 75 cents!

     It totally caught my eye because of its worn red paint, and I just love rocking chairs anyway. It was missing one of the back rods, but a dowel rod painted red fixed that pretty easily. I didn't touch the paint. I thought its chippy, shabby little self was just perfect.

     I sewed a little cushion for the seat out of some scraps. The little lady thinks its just wonderful. She spent the entire afternoon sitting in it, patting it, re-arranging the cushion, and telling me how much she "likeys the cheear momma".

    That was 75 cents well spent in my book!

  1. What an awesome find! Great job. You're right, the fun paint is perfect. I might add a sealer to keep it from chipping further in case it is lead based. :)

  2. That little red rocker is absolutely gorgeous!
