It lived in our office for a few months. I got more and more pregnant. I would look at it, rock in it, and dream about our baby-on-the-way.
Then we babysat one of our friend's babies.
Not only did this puppy squeak to high heaven, it also "travelled" as you rocked. All things I hadn't noticed until I was trying to rock a fussy baby to sleep.
I knew that she was well-built and had so much potential so I couldn't just throw her away. But I knew for sure that I was going to be that mom who ordered the bland but quiet, stationary glider rocker. You do what you gotta do.
So I prettied her up using the same technique and tools I used to beautify my Lots of Potential Chair. Then I sweet talked my mom into helping me reupholster the cushions. $14 later, she was better than ever and she sold within an hour at a local baby consignment sale.
I'm really starting to love the glazed look but haven't attempted it yet. Have any of you tried your hand at glazing yet? I'd love some pointers!
