While shopping at Goodwill on 72nd and Ames Avenue, I remembered that you never know what you are going to find. I popped into Goodwill just to look around. In all honesty, I was primarily looking for clothes for my daughter. But as I walked down the furniture aisle, I found an old kid-sized rocking chair. It was only $5.99! I knew that my two year old daughter would just love it, but it was in rough shape though.
I took it home and turned it over to my husband. He sanded it down and then we put a coat of stain on it – pretty simplistic as far as DIY projects go. The end result was better than expected. It’s a beautiful deep maple color that fits not only my daughter perfectly, but also my living room décor. In fact, my daughter loves it so much that we had her picture taken it the chair. We plan to have our six dollar find around for a very long time!
