One project I tackled getting ready for baby V was a rocking chair. My mom kindly found a great bentwood rocking chair (about 2+ years ago before baby V was even a twinkle in H and my eye.... gotta love grandparents!).
While the chair itself was a great classic design (a Thonet knockoff), the upholstery fabric and foam were a dire situation that needed to be remedied ASAP.
So, I got my Dad to take the back and seat panel out for me - they were just glued in place, and H cleaned up the frame while I got started on the re-upholstering. I decided to double up the foam on the seat to give my tush a better bit of cushioning during the many hours I'll be in that chair nursing, but only a single layer on the back (FYI- I got my foam at Walmart).
After test driving a few fabric options I went with a diamond Ikat design in a pre-treated against stains upholstery fabric that I picked up at a local fabric store (Fabricland for any locals).
I decided to spice up the back with a contrasting fabric which you might recognize from here , which is unfortunately now retired :( .
For now it's taken up residence in the living room, as I figure that most of my nursing time will be during the day.... so, we have another comfy fully upholstered non-rocking chair in the nursery for those late night sessions.
