Upholstered Rocking chair

This client found my blog as her husband was hauling this chair off to the was in a little rough shape. The yellow fabric was worn, stained, and shredding, but besides that it was great!

Here is the rocker before...

The arm was torn and her kids kept picking at the foam.

She chose a great random stripe from Home Fabrics in Salt Lake and prewashed it for me. I chose the large grey stripe as my center and went from there.

Ran piping along the bottom up and over the rockers.

I also ran piping on the inside arm seam...that way when the stripes run into eachother it looks more finished.

Outside arm

She'd putting it in her home office, so she can rock her baby in it.

I loved the fun colors in the stripe...and welcomed the matching of them after a really hard day of matching the day before on a 15" stripe that waved back and forth.

Side Note--- Yesterday I was featured on Addicted to Decorating Blog and Miss Mustard Seed Blog! Go and check it out!

Nothing beat a stripe. So classic.
