The Rocker

My last chair for the living room (for now. *evil laugh*) Also a CL find. This one downtown. Listed for $45. Fairly simple lines and upholstery as I was looking for. I was hoping that the upholstery was clean and the color in the picture, but was prepared to redo it if necessary. another pleseant surprise when I picked up the beauty and it was just what I wanted!

As you can see the chair started with some wicker mesh filling in the arm space. The guy selling the chair had it out in the hallway the morning I came to pick it up and one of his nice neighbors put a dent in the wicker. He dropped the price down to $25. THANK YOU NEIGHBOR. I was taking out the wicker anyway. awesome.

I got this baby home, took off the bottom cushion then started inspecting the back cushion. This was NOT stapled onto a board then screwed onto the chair frame. This was all stapled STRAIGHT onto the chair. I tried to pull it up and slightly tore a piece of the piping. I promptly stopped pulling at the back fabric and just creatively covered it for painting. When I am ready to spend the time and money on reupholstering this rocker I will take on the project. for now I am content with it. And so excited that all the living room furniture is acquired and done!
