I wanna ROCK (-ing chair)

Standard

Whew, these past couple of weeks have been hectic ones! I have been enjoying the summer weather and have been working my booty off and getting new awesome clients! Around memorial day, my beautiful mother in law sent a rocking chair to me. She told me that it was her good friends and that she wanted it reupholstered. I checked it out and though, I can do this no problem…until i tried to hammer in my first furniture nail! Oak is a HARD wood! I had to come up with a new game plan other than just hammering the furniture nails in. It took me a few times but I got the rhythm. I used the fabric that I had finished the same woman’s foot stool with and think they will go very nicely together. I love the look of this old rocker and felt that an antique brassy finishing nail would be perfect. I found these furniture nails at Lowes where they have a TON of options. Finally, after all the hours of trial and error, I would say the chair came out looking pretty awesome!
