I laundered it and I actually use it when rocking in my chair, usually with a kitty in my lap.
I wonder if she is still around?
I discovered it in an upscale 2nd hand shop. I plan to recover the fabric but for now I just enjoy it, especially in the morning, cup of coffee in one hand, a kitty in my lap and watching the "Bird Channel"...lol! (birds on my balcony & feeders).
Ok, if you ask my hubby dearest,,,he will tell you..I am always bringing home "Honey-do projects" for him....and these 2 chairs are a good example..
The little one is a small student's solid Oak chair, that had layers of paint...
I bought it for $1.99, brought it home, hubby did his wood working magic and Voila'! instant cute chair....
As for the larger student desk/chair, I found it for $7.99, it needed some TLC to which my hubby took it apart, striped, glued & stained it & brought it back to life.
I have a couple of 100% wool blankets stashed under the chair... (I collect Wool Blankets).
I love that my hubby doesn't fuss to much when I bring these cast offs home for him to refurbish & bring back to life. So glad I can tap into his love of wood working....
Little does he know I want him to strip the finish off the rocker above & re-stain it...my job will to be to re-upholster it....see, I do help! lol!
