And, of course, they'll be pictures of the "new" chair, right?

Hooray for your chair! I can't wait to see how it turns out. Did you end up using the fabric Samantha brought, or did you choose another?

Also, holy crap! Thirty-seven?! I'm totally scared for you, like you may drop this baby at any second. I've never been that far along. Eek!

Even though the colors don't match, the rocker will rock just fine. It will have to wait on becoming pretty and just serve the rocking function. It has character the way it is right now.

Having completed several "re-upholstering jobs" myself, usually involving nails, staples, and gratuitous use of the F word, I think you made the right call. Can't wait to see how it turns out!

Somehow I knew who the domestic goddess was going to be before I rolled over the link!

I'm with you - all for having the intentions to do something myself and then handing it off to pros...I simply do not have the patience or ability to do those kinds of things myself!

I rocked you in this chair when I was 13.
;) very special.
Love AD

Let's hear it for professionals. It drives me crazy when I watch shows like "Design on a Dime" and they make a room fantastic for under $500 with new entertainment centers and fireplace mantels that "only cost $50!" Yeah, $50 if you're an experienced carpenter with a full workshop and ability to get materials at cost. Also, yay for hand-me-downs.

I can't wait to see the finished product! Somehow I knew that Molly was the domestic goddess! Because, of course, she totally is!
