New rocking chair!

The last two weeks have been filled with working on half finished projects. Many of them may not be finished in time due to outside circumstances, but the rocking chair was high on the priority list, and so I made it happen. I cannot wait to sit on this adorable gray rocker, nursing little Laz between his bed and Eli's in the middle of the night. I had so much fun finishing this chair knowing the memories it would bring.

Before, it was a cute little cushion-less red rocker in need of some TLC.

Now, it's a more neutral gray with a geometric off center patterned cushion. The fabric is from Ikea. I have to say, I was disappointed to see that it was such a large pattern. I thought the flower would be much smaller. Still, I am happy with how it turned out. It's good to have something a little more random for the symmetrical control freak that I am. (and yes, that is wallpaper in the background-my dearest friend Jessica sent it to me after reading THIS post. Dan and I hope to have it done before Laz comes.)
