I’ve had this vintage bentwood rocking chair for some time. I originally bought it thinking we might have a baby, and this would be good for a nursery once it was refinished. The baby probably isn’t going to materialize. We were spooked by the pandemic and job complications, so we’ll see how things go before revisiting that again. But, I did finally finish the chair.
It’s been mostly finished for ages. I stripped, sanded and stained the frame and finished the seat bottom last year, and started on the embroidery for the seat back before I lost steam. Now that I have a better, less stressful, job I felt up to working on it again.
It used to make me a little sad, but now when I look at it I feel very happy. Now I want to re-do more chairs, but my husband says we don’t have room!
