Rocker Revamp

 As I am sure you know, because I have told you a thousand times, that my niece Avery's 1st birthday was this weekend.  I am still in love with the gift I got her.  I didn't want to share it on here before I gave it to her, but now that the festivities have passed, all systems are a go. I have been dying to share this revamp with all of you! 


I started out looking for a child sized rocker that could be turned into a rocker that a little girl could be proud of. 
That is how this:

Became this: 


There really wasn't anything wrong with the before picture, but it sure wasn't special.  It was just a run of the mill wooden rocker with a woven seat.  I wanted to transform it to something whimsical, girly, and special for my very special Avery.  I chose pink paint and brown/pink/green paisley print fabric.  I started by sanding down some of the rough spots.  Then I put on a couple layers of paint.  Finally I covered the woven seat with a cotton pad and upholstered it with the fun print fabric.
Hopefully the rocker will bring many years of fun for Avery.  

I think she liked it: 


I want to give a special thanks to Lindsay at Better After.  She features amazing transformations of run down furniture, light fixtures, laundry rooms, and everything else in between.  Every time I visit her blog I am excited about something I see!
