I won't lie...when I first saw this little rocker at Savers it took me a while to decide if I should buy it. If I am buying a piece for me or someone in my family, price is less of an issue...I mean, don't get me wrong, I still want a good deal, but if it is a piece that I feel we "need" or just can't live without, I will usually pay the price.
This little rocker was not going to stay in the family. Now, I know what you are thinking...I have not one, but two little granddaughters, but can I just tell you that not only does Melissa already have another rocker that I redid, but I really don't think one more piece of furniture will fit in their room.
So, I had to think it through before bucking up and paying the $9.99 for this little thing:
Since I was by myself, I sent a quick pic to Melissa to get her opinion...when in doubt, I usually always check it out with one daughter or the other! Tell me again how we lived without cell phones!
Anyhoo, it was overall good shape and very sturdy. I did have to use some wood filler on the actual rocker pieces on the bottom...it looked as though a dog might have chewed on them a bit. Easy fix! Here is what she looks like today:
I used Annie Sloan Old White paint and added the cute little image that I purchased from Graphique, the same way that I did Polly's cabinet doors and the twin headboard.
So whatcha' think? Turned out kind of cute, huh?
On another note...my family says it has been forever since I have made cookies...so I may have to whip some up just for the heck of it. Maybe try out some of my new cutters!

There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!
