It all started when my dad found an awesome little antique rocking chair on the side of the road. It was in sad shape, one arm was gone and the other was hanging. The fabric was falling off and only about half the nailheads remained. Little did that rocking chair know, but it was about to be transformed!! Continue reading “DIY or Buy: Vintage Mudcloth Rocker”
