It's not nice to say something looks trashy, but that is how this rocker looked. When I spied this chair sitting curbside and asked the owner if it was for free, he said, "Take it." That's music to my furniture-lovin' ears. Worn, a puppy chew toy, and left for the trash truck, this outdated rocker needed a new lease on life. Nothing that a coat of paint and new upholstery couldn't fix! Come see the makeover on the blog...
Curbside Rocker Gets Black Beauty Makeover
Amazing what a bit of paint and new upholstery can do to an outdated piece, isn't it?
When I found this rocker it reminded me of the first bentwood rocker I had ever worked on. It just needed some love and a DIY attitude.
The worst part of the damage was the fact that the chair had been used as a puppy chew toy. Nothing that a little repair couldn't fix.
My paint sprayer made for a quick makeover and gave this cast-off a chic new look.
Come on over and see how a trashy chair can be a chic addition to your decor!

Jane R. on Oct 18, 2015I have one in my garage that could use your help. The wood is okay, (could use some stain or paint though) but the cane broke on the seat bottom and I removed it. I had a piece of plywood cut to fit but haven't done anything with it. The cane is still on the chair back but is old and discolored. I doubt I'll ever do anything with it. I clicked on the link to see more, but the site isn't working.
