Trash to Treasure Tuesday-Kids Rocking Chair

I bought this for $10.00 at a Garage Sale. Not bad, just very outdated.

I removed the pillow & fluffy arm rest & had my lovely hubby cut me two boards to size, bought some foam & some material & recovered it in about 10 minutes.

I'm definetly more of a hot pink kind of girl but this is going to sit in our living room so I wanted it to somewhat match. I think the material it looks old fashioned but I know it's brand new, lol. It still needs a pillow or something but is usually full of 1 of my 2 kiddo's so it's not that big of deal. The pillow would probably end up on the floor anyway, lol.

I still plan on sanding it down & painting it with the free Chocolate colored paint that I got from Glidden. Yeaaa I'm so excited, but this will work for now.

Check out Kimm at Reinvented for more Trash to Treasure's. Gotta go back to work now!!!
****Edited to Add*****
I never did receive my Glidden paint. :( Not sure what happened to it so the chair has not been sanded down but I did make a pillow out of a placemat. I then stitched some ribbon onto the back & hooked it to the chair. It has been this way for 3 months & is still working out for us. :)
