My kids bought me a gorgeous wooden rocker for Mother’s day a couple years back. It’s had a rough couple of years and the one of the rockers was broke off last year when someone rared back in it. I convinced hubby it could be saved!! I’M A MAJOR REFURBISHER!!! Is there such a word? 😉
Anyway, I had him take the rockers off and make it a pretty bench for the porch or yard. As you know from previous posts, we’re big porch sitters and entertain on our porch a lot. It looked great!
Sometime during the big birthday party it was sat in again, rared back in again and more repairs were definitely needed before using it safely again for entertaining. Hubby used some ingenuity and placed some braces in strategic places and here’s what it looks like before it gets a new paint job.
And here’s the final project.
Hubby has decided that if this doesn’t keep it upright and strong enough for ANYONE to sit in it will be used for kindling in the winter. Here’s the finished product have a new paint job.
