Sharon has a question for the Ohdeedoh crowd: Fabric advice for rocker? We're expecting a baby boy in January and I am working on the nursery.

Nothing at Ikea or Zarin - and Josef Frank (again) is out of the budget.

We know that the Ohdeedoh readers are a talented bunch when it comes to DIY...can anyone help out with some suggestions for Sharon? Let her know in the comments below...thanks!
