My cousin had a baby last night (CONGRATS!), so I have baby on the brain. This reminded me of one of my best upcycles. I found a very comfortable swivel rocker and ottoman for our nursery, but I had to do some smooth talking to convince my husband. This was a longer term investment than just the baby years, I argued.
Seven years later, it is still one of the most comfortable chairs in our house. I had the chair re-upholstered in a neutral woven fabric that could fit in anywhere. Tailored details like the buttons and the inverted box pleats make the chair a bit more refined than it’s previous life with a Toil slip cover.
