Look! Vintage Rockers for Evenings on the Porch

Here's another post from Ana, who's vying for a spot on the Southwest team, focusing on Austin. Let us know what you think in the comments below!

In the South, where hanging out on the porch talking and drinking is a time-honored tradition, comfort is key. And there's nothing more relaxing a rocking chair. Vintage patio furniture has been gaining in popularity in recent years -- and with good reason. Certain designs, like the bouncer, have become classics, and they'll last for decades. A little spray paint will give new life to old metal chairs and tables. And they look equally fine when they have a little rust and show their years.

So if you'd like to rock the night away, you can go with an iron chair, which often feature ornate designs...

Aluminum rockers are great if you want something light and portable.

In Austin, Uptown Modern has a large selection (including all of those pictured), but you can get lucky on Craigslist or some of the thrift shops Kristin covered last week.
