Isn't this chair pretty? I especially love the pretty cushions and pink ruffle!
The chair didn't always look so cute. A good friend asked for a little help with the rocker she had in her daughters' bedroom. Her daughters are now two and four years old. She has been rocking both of them in that rocker at night since her oldest was newborn. She told me instead of buying a new chair when she found out she was pregnant with her oldest, she opted to use the rocker her husband had in college. He had no clue about the history of the chair. Prior to its first makeover, it looked like this:
My friend's mother-in-law sewed cushion covers and a ruffle to match their first nursery. The ruffle was attached to the chair with velcro. I don't have a picture of the chair with the yellow cover but this is the removable ruffle:
I did not make the ruffle removable like in the previous makeover. I tacked the ruffle directly to the chair.
