We found this old rocker at a yard sale yesterday. I have this theory about antiques: There are two types of antiques - those that are still around because no one ever used them because they were impractical or uncomfortable, and those that are still around because they were made well. This rocker falls into the latter category: It is very sturdy and still beautiful....
So I got to work. I pried off the old upholstery....
Then I stapled on some new fabric....
Finally, I attached a sort of fake welting - made with seams from old blue jeans....
I think this chair was worth the effort. What do you think? Happy Creating!! Happy Day!! Susan


  1. Nice find, nice work! The last picture looks as if it is calling us with both arms, much the same way we stretch our hands outward while calling little kids [to carry them].

  2. I love that analogy, Dinu!! Love it, love it....
    Did you notice that I used blue jean seams around the edges? If you want a close-up, hold down your control key while you scroll with your mouse....

  3. “ woodworking pro weebly ” (Google it)
    This woodworking book contains a great deal of details about wood working. The book also shows several designs and explanations on the materials useful for different woodworking processes and the directions on completing different processes properly. In other words, I`m happy using this book, specially in the procedure of understading about wood working.?
