My daughter has a thing for chairs these days and she loves to rock. So for Christmas we thought about ordering her a special child's rocking chair that she could have and maybe pass down to her own children someday. I looked around online and didn't really see anything earth shattering. Then I happened to come across this little guy at Goodwill for around $5. It was solid wood and felt really sturdy. The finish wasn't great but I knew I could paint it.
Thankfully we had a few warm days in December, so I grabbed the spray paint and gave it a few coats. We actually gave it to her for Christmas, I'm just a little late sharing it.
To make it a little more special I added a gold vinyl decal in the corner that says "sit." I used my silhouette machine, but you could easily do this with a stencil.
She loves it and I'm hoping it will be something we can keep in the family for a while. I always think it's neat when pieces have special family history. Do you have any family heirlooms?
