I really wanted an old looking, beautiful heirloom rocking chair for the nursery.
I jumped the gun and bought a lame white one for $15 from KSL awhile ago.
I wasn't happy with it so I kept looking.
I looked into getting a new one but they just don't make them like they used to!
Nothing I found seemed like a piece that would last forever and someday rock our grand babies.
I finally found exactly what I wanted on KSL again!
We went out to look at it and bought it.
I was so excited about it!
I thought about getting it painted a fun color but after talking about it
we decided to stain it so it would be a classic color and last forever.
Ryan decided he wanted to do the work himself.
I was all about paying someone else to do it!
He spent so many hours and put in so much hard work!
I think he wanted to burn it most of the time...
It really took a long long time.
Mostly because Ryan is a perfectionist and wanted it done just right.
The end result,
it is perfect!
I cannot wait to rock our little one to sleep in the chair that Ryan worked so hard on.
I hope someday our children will cherish this chair
and remember us as the rock their own children in it.
