I know I normally post on Tuesdays and Thursdays but I couldn't wait to share this before and after!
Since Harrison came a bit early, I didn't have the rocker at the house when we brought him home from the hospital.
If you're new to the site, here's a one-liner to catch you up: Matt and I decided to refinish an heirloom antique rocker from his Great Aunt instead of popping on an upholstered glider for the nursery.
Check out this post to read more about stripping it down and painting it.
I'm checking in on this beautiful Thursday with a rocking chair update!
I'm so happy to see some blue skies today after all the snow yesterday. We ended up with right around a foot of the white stuff! I stayed inside all day organizing, relaxing, and drinking gallons of tea. It was pretty nice.
If you recall, Matt and I decided to forego our original decision to buy an upholstered nursery glider in favor of a family heirloom that his Great Aunt passed onto us before she passed away.
There are four nightstands in this house, and I've refinished two of them. Two were already beautifully refinished by Matt's dad. The first nightstand that I refinished was done all alone. Yep, I tackled it solo, sans hubby. It was a $12 tag sale find that spruced up really nicely with a quick sanding, chalk paint, and new hardware.
A few weeks ago, I hit up a tag sale in my hometown while I was visiting my family. My dad told me a colleague of his was downsizing, and she decided to hold the tag sale to sell a bunch of her things. I knew I wanted to swing by to check it out, but I didn't think I'd buy anything, because I didn't really need anything.
