My "New" Rocking Chair...







So... I refuse to pay full price for just about ANYTHING... call me a cheapskate... I don't even care... I wanted a rocking chair/glider thing... but they are all ugly and expensive... two things I dislike greatly...

So I've been scouring Craigslist for a good deal... I found one for $40... it was hardly even used and the guy kept telling me this... I guess he wanted me to offer more than the $60 he was asking. I offered $40 and that I could come get it tonight... he had OK... so I grabbed it...

Then I went to Joanns and bought some upholstery fabric to cover the nasty biege... and then I covered an old pillow with the leftover fabric to jazz it up some... I'm pretty darn proud of it! One of these days I'll actually get his room put together... Probably by the time he's walking...
