The Nursery Rocking Chair

I have been really slow to post the finished pictures of the rocking chair we refinished.  I wish I had before pictures.  It started out in  pieces in a 5 gallon bucket.  I snagged the pieces from my Grandma's basement, it was an unfinished project of my Grandpa's.  Jason figured out the puzzle, replaced a piece or two and then it waited for me to get around to doing something with it.  So I brought it here to finish up and to use. This is the first time I have had a rocking chair that I have used for rocking a baby to sleep.  Tennyson just needs a little more snuggling to get to sleep than the others did.  We have loved it.  The re-upholstery job is not perfect - we don't have many tools here.  The next time it gets a face life I will have my Mom and my Grandma handy to help me make it look even better.

Any ideas of what to do with a bunch of tacks?

Very nice job. You are brave to try that with only the basic tools that you were allowed to bring. Good work. Does Jason answer his email?

looks FABULOUS! But would you expect anything less coming from you two?? Miss, miss you.

The chair is gorgeous. I can't believe how talented Jason is to come up with the missing pieces on his own. Love the pink!
