I’m still adding finishing touches to baby girl’s nursery, but I thought I’d share a sneak peek of one of the projects I’ve already completed, if you’d like to see…
In my first trimester when I was so sick, I found that rocking back and forth in the glider at my midwife’s office was very soothing. I decided that I wanted to get one for the house and I started scouring Craigslist for good deals.
I came across this simple rocking chair and thought it would do the trick, so we snatched it up with the goal of re-covering the cushions. Here’s a before photo:
The color was a tired mint that was yellowing with age. I didn’t know the condition of the cushions underneath, so I decided to keep the mint covers and sew right over them. I chose this grey and white polka dot fabric knowing that we could use it down the line if baby #2 is a boy.
The glider didn’t come with an ottoman, so I searched around for something creative to use. I found this knitted pouf on sale at Target for $30— score!
Now, to find the perfect throw pillow and I think this project will be complete!
