Furniture Reveal: Miniature Rocking Chair

My sister in law is in the midst of moving to the Pacific Northwest. In the process of selling much of their stuff, she bought this darling little vintage rocking chair (it doesn’t take up much room, good call!). It is actually quite unique. It can extend up as a high chair (she has a tray attachment as well).

She has some adorable little girls who love having a chair their own size. She wanted me to upholster it and make it a little more comfortable for them.

I happened to have a small amount of this vintage looking upholstery fabric I bought while on vacation in San Diego last year.  It was perfect.

I used 1” high density foam and batting and followed the curve on the front of the chair finishing it off with gimp trim to make it look a little more intentional.  I think the upholstery makes it look so inviting.

She loved the way it turned out. And we were a little sad to have to give it back.  But even sadder to see them go.

I guess I need to keep an eye out for vintage children’s furniture myself.

Have a blessed weekend!
