Meet my $45 rocking chair

I found this rocking chair at a antique store for $45 bucks, score! I fell in love with the cane back and rad red color. Finished it off by" reupholstering" the seat made from tablecloth fabric; never underestimate great fabric found in tablecloths, curtains, and sheets! This newly furbished chair is the perfect addition for the guest room/nursery.
(pardon the funny-lit pictures, I took these at night)

Oh. What I forgot to ask - I can't seem to click on your 'faith story'... Is that sill in the works or do I just have a problem with the link? x

My folks have that exact rocking chair! (Minus the rad-red, of course!) Must have been a popular 70's style. Cane back is back in!

Awesome! I have curtains in that same print for my living room. And I painted some chairs I found on Craigslist in Firebrick (Behr) to bring out the red. Glad to see I'm not the only one who <3's that color combo.
