On the list: Slipcover Challenge.

One DIY task I want to accomplish before baby boy comes is to sew a slipcover for our nursery rocker.  We used this same rocker in Kingston’s nursery (although the hubs seems to remember me using the rocker/recliner downstairs rather than this beaut’) and now it has made a re-appearance in our home…

In my opinion, this rocker could definitely use a little face-lift.  Made of a soft green corduroy, this baby is probably the smallest rocker you will ever find – i.e. no pre-made slipcover would ever do this rocker right.  And besides, who wants to spend $9083028303.00 on a slipcover that will be spit-up on and “gently” used by our little boys.  Yeah, not me. So… bring on the slipcover challenge!

Thank goodness for the internet & Pinterest… I have found a few styles/ideas I’m definitely keeping in mind.  I have mentioned my ideas to my mom, my co-hort in this challenge, and I think we will have no trouble at all transforming this rocker into the coziest yet most stylish little nursery rocker you can find!

Stay Tuned…

  1. Awesome! Looking forward to seeing the finished product! I just started ripping apart a slipper chair to be recovered. It’s my first time. Good luck!
