rocking chair redo

i'm back as promised with some pretty cute rocking chairs if i do say so myself!
a friend picked up the child sized one from a market and gave it to me saying "i just know you can do something with this!"
so, not wanting to disappoint, painted the little baby right up in the softest of greens- 1/4 strength Peaceful Bay to be exact. Kacey's room is painted in it and i so love it. it really is a peaceful colour too! you can see her room here.
Mumma chair got the white treatment. and a shabby up of course.
both chairs are now living in my classroom- i'm team teaching a Grade One class with a friend this year, and we're pretty excited about it!
i have made many a raggy quilt, but never a raggy cushion, and the teacher chair just had to have some colour.
they make a cute pair don't you think?
before pic....
back to work tomorrow ARGG!!
