Yesterday I posted about the rocking chair I re-wove from fabric - my Rocker Redo. The colors are a little much for the look I'm after.
Well, now I'm gonna show you my rocker RE-re_do.
Today, this rocker has another look thanks to a slipcover I made at least 5 years ago.
The slipcover fabric came from curtains I had made for my bay window 15 or 20 years ago. I still love the fabric - it's timeless. At some point I realized the curtain pieces could be converted to a cover for the rocker with very little modification - mostly adding Velcro. All the pieces are secured with hidden Velcro strips.
With all our pets, I swear by slipcovers. If company is coming fast, I can take the slipcovers completely off. If I have more notice, I usually wash the slipcovers. I wash them all pretty often anyway. I do not like sitting on fur.
Here's the rocker all dressed up. I think I prefer the look with the slipcover on. It helps to tone down the too-bright chest. But, if I get into an "I Need Color" mood, all I have to do is undress my rocker!
I love, love, love the little pillow. I found it at a thrift store this past week. It was love at first sight. I didn't even have to debate with myself over whether to get it or not.
I think maybe tonight I should check into learning to make mint juleps and sit a spell out on the veranda. Y'all come on by!
