Do you think a carpenter/reupholsterer/wood worker could put rockers on the chair?

$149 for the chair, $50 for the slipcover, $____ for the transformation? I love those Serena & Lily gliders as much as the next gal but this is a much more affordable option.

  • Of course you can! In FACT, that’s such a good idea, I plan to steal it.

    Hahaha…and those colors? When I have another baby, they will be surrounded in them.

  • ya.. i like that idea too Sarah.
    maybe one day when we are grown ups and we have a store, maybe we could get Chris to make that rocky chair for us… maybe?

  • I looked into doing this when I was putting together Evan’s nursery. I found a tutorial online where a dude took rocker legs off an old porch rocker and screwed them to the bottom of an upholstered chair. He had to reinforce them a bit to account for the extra weight but it turned out fantastic.
