Now don't let this build-up fool you. It was only a bit of sandpaper, wood stain and washing machine fabric dye but dammit I did it!
My mother in law gave me this ikea rocking chair and I've always had a disdain for it as it doesn't match the decor in our bedroom (where it lives). So last weekend, for the grand total of £10, I picked up the supplies I needed to give this baby a facelift. A little sanding, a little painting and a little sanding.....
This is what I got
And an awesome washing machine that did some fabric dying for me....
Voila!! My new chair!
I'm now on the search for a new throw and some interesting pillows to jazz it up a bit.
What do you think? Are you a DIY-er? What are your favorite projects?
Happiest of Tuesdays to you!!
