So, I acquired my first baby item yesterday! I haven't let myself buy anything yet, but we're officially 12 weeks and 3 days, and so when I saw this on FreeCycle, I had to have it. I didn't know what I was getting into, just a "bent wood rocker with fabric seats" was the description. So, when I picked it up, I was pleasantly surprised!
Sure, it's a little dirty, and I'm not really into the wood, but I'm planning on sanding it down, painting it white, and then obviously recovering the seat in some fun fabric to match the curlies. Trevor, of course, thinks it's "fugly" at the moment, as he does everything that I bring home, before it's fixed. But, I think with that coat of white paint, the curls will look less traditional, and more whimsical, more kid like.
What do you think?
