It’s fun to take a stroll down memory lane and every Tuesday this month my blogger friends and I are digging into our archives and pulling out some of our favorite makoevers for Trash to Treasure Transformation Tuesday. For this week, I have decided to focus on some of my favorite rocking chair makeovers, including one in particular.
Some of my most coveted custom orders from my shop have been for rocking chairs for new moms or moms-to-be. What a true blessing that is to be able to help someone welcome a new person to the world. So when another request came in for an upholstered rocking chair, I set out to find something to fit the bill and here is what I came up with. An Art Deco beauty that has seen lots of love.
This rocking chair was owned by a mom of two boys and told me she would take it everywhere with her because it was the only rocking chair in existence that would soothe her colicky baby. In her words, “A true lifesaver”. I think mothers everywhere can relate to those feelings, right? Sometimes we’ll do anything to make baby happy.
Now, instead of rehashing the whole post here, I am going to ask you to just do one click HERE to head over to see the makeover. I promise you won’t be disappointed. AND you’ll get to see what my blogger friends have in store for you too – you don’t want to miss it!
Here’s a sneak-peek of the goodness going on over there:
Later on this week, I’ll be showing you what I did with these basket wall hangings I found.

Hi Larissa, I just read your past blog about when you had your last baby…it was very sad (for lack of a better word) What I want to convey is that your six children are gorgeous in that wonderful portrait of them (all dressed in white.) You are a very courageous and religious woman. I can tell you are one of God’s “favorites.” I feel I know you a little better now and I love reading your blog…so ambitious and creative. Don’t know how you keep up but you are a great mentor for me to “push” myself and to not let one minute be wasted. Thankyou. Sherry
Thank you so much, Sherry. That means so much to me. Growing up I never would have thought my life would have such stories, but I am living proof that God stays true. Wasting a minute is not in my book, but I certainly love making use of my days!
