She’s Crafty: Rocking the Chair

A few weeks ago I posted my curbside find. I sat on it with its old seat for quite a while. Its a great place to drink coffee and read a book in the morning.

When I last updated my mom stole the seat. She cut a new piece of wood for me since the old one was rotting away. No one likes a rotten seat.

Once I had the seat I purchased new foam from Joanne’s, wrapped it with batting, and then stapled the new fabric over it all. (I’m getting quite good at recovering things to sit on.)

Viola!

My mom picked out the pillow to go along with the fabric. Its not really what I’d pick out, but adds a nice little punch.

Here’s what my front porch looks like right now:

Never mind the husband. My mums this year are thriving. Yay for remembering to water stuff!

We have purchased two old windows, but need a couple more before we finish the side project.

What do you think?
