Antique rocking chair update

Debby Carling
by Debby Carling
Found this beauty in a local thrift store. Great lines but defintely need to shed those ugly clothes! Cleaned her up, sanded, painted followed by stain, a bit of weathering and a few coats of polyurethane for protection. The fabric and nailhead trim complete the package.
The before.

    I was very excited to fund your pictures! I have a rocking chair identical to this that was my grandparents. My husband and I recently found out we are expecting so I am excited to redo this rocker. How did you removing the backing and seat? I was just gong to tear in to it if I had to but since I found your pictures I was hoping for some advice! Thank you in advance! Rachel

    Please tell me the name of the fabric and manufacturer! I'm going blind searching all of the fabric sights! I have an antique chair I am going to restore and think this is the perfect fabric for it! Thank you!
