Little Rocking Chair


I promise this is the last post on my daughters room but before I show you the complete reveal tomorrow I thought I would share a before and after of this sweet little rocking chair that I found for her room. I scored it at a garage sale for $2.00!!!
 
 
Remember when I posted it on Facebook asking for some inspiration ideas?!?
 
 
 
 
Almost all of you said to paint it white/cream and cover the cushion with a bright fun fabric. Well, I followed your advice and painted the chair a creamy white, distressed it and added this fun green apple fabric to the cushion!
 
 
 






 



Didn't it turn out so cute!! It's the perfect little accessory for our 'almost-big-girl-room!' The room is perfect for my little princess (can you see her playing under her "tea-time" table?) Be sure to check back tomorrow for the complete room reveal! You can catch a little sneek peek of her closet-turned-play-area in the last photo!

  5. Nice job! You would probably have to pay triple digits for that at Pottery Barn.
