Recovering a Rocking Chair and Cute Nursery!

Eliza's Nursery
My brother Stetson and sister in law Holly recently had a sweet sweet baby girl, Eliza Mae Banks She is the cutest thing ever!
A few weeks before Eliza was born, Holly found a rocking chair on craigslist and I helped her recover it.
First, we took the nasty padding off the chair
Then, we measured out the fabric to start stapling.
I used an air compressor staple gun to staple on the fabric.
Make sure to pull tight around the whole cushion but not too tight or else the fabric will ripple. After stapling around the whole chair we cut off the extra fabric.
Then we laid the top piece on top and started to staple around.  We had to stay very close to the edge so that when we popped the cushion into
place the staples would not be seen.
It turned out perfect!
Here is the cute chair in the nursery. The nursery turned out really really cute. There is one wall that I did not get pictures of because it was a photo collage wall and it is not finished yet but it will be very cute. The changing table is on the that wall and Holly painted it a coral color.Love it!
All the furniture is second hand and was painted by Holly!
P.S. did you notice the cute “Eliza” sign… I made that cute banner for Holly’s baby shower. I used German Glass and old school white glue on chip board letters from Hobby Lobby. Loved how it turned out! If you get the really German Glitter Glass it will age perfectly around the edges! Everyone needs to get there hands on some german glitter glass!
Now go get a cute chair to redo!
