Sooooo excited to share the results of the nursery rocker re-upholstery project! One of the things I love so much about the mid-century modern movement is the furniture; how well it was made, and made to last. I don’t think there’s anything more fun than rescuing a vintage piece of furniture, and bringing it up to date – INSTEAD of buying new, over-priced furniture that is both cheap and did I mention over-priced? HA! New rocking chairs for a nursery run into the 4 digit figures. Can you imagine paying $1000 + for a rocking chair or glider? Me neither. On with our story.
A very good friend referred me to a local guy who did a fantastic job with our Craigslist-found chair that rocks, swivels and swishes.
I’ll cut to the chase – and feature the before photo:
I found some fabric that made me swoon at PopDecorFabrics on Etsy. As soon as it was delivered, I ran it over to my main man, Ruben.
He does beautiful work, as you’ll see……
No seriously. Let’s see that again:
Now to make it baby puke-proof… but that’s a project for another day.
This week, I’ve been painting up a storm on my “Goodwill bookcase project” – and I’m hoping to be able to reveal that next week. This is going to be a DIY nursery if there ever was one, and I’m going to take you with me step by step!

Beautiful job Brooke!! I can’t wait to see the finished nursery. 🙂
Thanks Kiley! Long way to go yet…but we’re getting there.
Wow! That turned out nice! You have me curious about what you’ll be doing to the fabric to make it baby puke proof. How are you feeling these days? I hope the discomforts of pregnancy aren’t too bad. Regardless, the end result(baby) is worth it!
Thanks Elena! I’m not so sure puke-proof is possible….I was thinking maybe I could safely scotch guard it…not sure yet about if I should do that. Feeling just fine! Huge, but just fine. 🙂
Gorgeous Brooke!!! Orange you glad you chose that color? 😉
Thanks Lin!! I surely am.
