I am going to be a better blogger….I am going to be a better blogger…I am going to be a better blogger. Believe me yet? Ok, I am working on it and would really like to keep this updated better. Truly.
We have delivered some really cool pieces since my last post but I thought today I would feature a rocking chair makeover.
Kelly found this rocking chair in our Facebook album of pieces needing a new look and wanted it for her son’s nursery. She requested an “old dirty baseball” look. So fun!
First up this baby needed some repair. Fortunately, I am married to my guy who is awesomely handy and he totally fixed it up for me. If only he would read this little blog to see all the props I give him. Love you honey!
Sanded, primer, and white paint later this baby was ready for some baseball stitching. I played around chalking on some stitches and made a real mess actually. I tried making the seat itself look like a baseball and to be honest it look like a perfect place for your rear…ya know? Not cool. Erase.
Just so happens my girl, Amanda, was visiting that week and we put our noggins together and came up with this…
Heavily distressed and glazed for a good ol’ dirty worn look and it’s all ready for lots a baby snugglin’. Congrats Kelly on your new bundle arriving soon!
