I got this sweet little rocking chair on Freecycle. When I got it, it was in about ten different pieces. I was able to put it back together and replace the two missing spindles with dowels I already owned. If you look closely you can see that the two dowels I replaced are a bit smaller than the originals, but I am in to using what I have, luckily they aren't that much off. Unfortunately I have no picture of the rocker before I glued her back together, that was preblog. Here is what she looked like after she was put back together. I am not sure how old this is, but sure it is at least 30-40 years old. If anyone knows please let me know, you just don't see little rockers like this any more.
Everywhere there looks like there is a split, that is where it was apart. The lady who gave it to me was going to throw it away, but I told her I thought I could put it back together.
I painted her with DIY Chalkpaint in an off white, then lightly distressed her and rubbed her with Minwax brand clear pastewax.
I made a pad with drop cloth fabric and used a cute transfer from Graphics Fairy using the Citrisolve method. She is so lovely now, you would never believe she started out as a pile of almost junk.
Now she is quite BEE utiful.
