So I promised a DIY project reveal this week didn't I? Well here it is! And boy is it exciting. To me it is anyway.
A little background... When we found out we were having a baby, I immediately started thinking of names, planning his/her room and making all kinds of plans! Well, these plans turned out to be SUPER expensive so we thrifted in every way possible for furniture for the babies room. Soon after we found out we were having a girl, my mom (being the AMAZING MOM SHE IS) found the most amazing rocker/glider at a thrift store for $20. Yeah, that's right, $20. Now we all know they can run upwards of $200 plus so I was thrilled! That meant we could spend more on bedding right? Oh wait, we are being thrifty right?? Anyway, I was so excited to hear she found that, well when I saw it in person, I was less than thrilled... here is what I saw...
OH MY! My mom has an eye for these things... ME?? Not so much!! But I trusted her and her DIY skills and two coats of KILZ primer and some white paint, $10 worth of fabric and TADA!!!! We had the beautiful rocker you see below!! It doesn't even look like the same one does it?? And we saved ourselves a couple of hundred dollars going this route! Sure I would have loved to have one of those big comfy recliner gliders, but trust me, this thing is so comfortable and for about $50 it makes Addison's room look dreamy! Stay tuned for a post on her room tomorrow!
I present to you the DIY project of my amazing and talented mother! Whatcha think? And yes, that is a pink feather boa on the back--haha! And you can see a lil' sneak peek of her room in this pic too :)
