My Mom received this rocking chair as a gift from my Grandmother (her Mother-in-law) at her baby shower for me over thirty years ago! So really it's not that old. 😉 After it served it's purpose in rocking me to sleep as a baby. It then made it's way into our living room where I remember it sitting with a TOTAL 70's style blanket draped over it (we're taking avocado green). It did suffer some abuse, however, specifically in the form of our golden retriever puppy, Cleo, mistaking it for a chew toy. Then my brother was born and it was back in the game. Eventually it made it's way to the dark basement…broken. It has been a long wait but it's back and with a face lift! Thanks to my Mom, the leg has been fixed and it's been given an eco-friendly paint job! I had a pad made by my friend Cheryl's Mom, and it's ready to go! Cleo's teeth marks are still there but I wouldn't have it any other way!
Before and After!
As a side note, I don't have much longer to go! I will be on Maternity leave until May 1st. Which actually is perfect timing for spring portrait sessions! I am putting sessions on my calendar now so if you are interested in a spring session, shoot me an email.
Last night at about 9pm this conversation happened:
Me: I'm SOOOOO tired, how do you have energy?
Hubby: Um…I'm not 9 months pregnant…
