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.

Every nursery needs a rocker. That’s for sure. I had the upholstered, glider version in my head. Forever. You know, something like this: (Image Source) Then, I realized how much space they take. We don’t have that kind of space in this house. I also realized I had a beautiful antique rocker sitting in the guest room that was begging to be refinished. Matt’s Great Aunt passed it down to us, and we both love the idea of bringing some glory to the vintage piece.
