Character

Things have been super busy around here as we are in full baby prep mode. One of the bigger items we have been looking for is a unique rocking chair. What good momma doesn’t need a cool looking rocker to keep her weary body moving in the wee hours of the night?

Luckily for us Meg’s Aunt and Cousin love to collect old furniture and reupholster them. They found this beauty at a garage sale for only $20.00!

I don’t know what garage sale they have been shopping at but I think we need to follow them around the next time they go bargain hunting!

When they found this Shaker Style Rocker it’s cushion’s were still filled with original straw! They wanted to paint it because of the veneer chip on the top right corner but we were not quite ready to see this piece covered in paint. I think it adds character. So they are sanding it down and putting a dark stain on it. Other then that and some new fabric this piece is gonna be just what we need to welcome our new little one to the family!

Can’t wait to show you the finished piece! We’ve got our first baby shower this weekend. It’s getting more REAL and little Baby Noodle is moving more and more everyday.

What weekend projects are you planning on tackling this weekend?

    FUN! We’ve got an old rocker that has been handed down through the generations that I plan on getting recovered soon :) For this weekend, hopefully we’ll be getting some paint on the walls in the nursery! Fingers crossed!
