I had been in search for a chair to place in our Office to create a sitting area. I wanted something small that could be easily moved around.
Something like this...
but, with a $700 price tag, it was not going to happen.
I turned to Craigslist. With a little luck, I was able to find this rocker for $25.00
I could not decide what to do with it just yet.
So, it lived in our garage for the summer. Since there was a small amount of rust showing on the metal legs, we knew it had to be painted. I choose to spray the rocker with a primer, then boring white to create a blank canvas.
It took a couple cans to completely cover the chair. Once I moved the rocker into the house, I realized the white wasn't so bad. But it needed something.
One day while doing laundry, I happened to notice something...
The pattern on it was adorable! So, I decided to trace part of it on the back of the rocker and see how it looked.
Instantly, I LOVED it, but did not want to carry the pattern onto the whole rocker.
With a couple colorful (and on clearance) throw pillows from Pier 1, the rocker has turned into one of my favorite pieces in the house.
For a total price of $50 (spray paint, throw pillows, and the chair), a old rocker was given new life :-).
