Repairs to my double seater rocker

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!

Shannon and Lisa meet Christine for the first time, I think!

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.

I love wooden rockers but this will make a pretty bench for the porch.  Time to make cushions now.

  1. Wow, it looks great! I’m glad you were able to save it. I love my porches I just wish they were covered so we could enjoy them during inclimate weather.
