Wingback rockers are beautiful and on-trend, but they're not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, so Mekenzie of Interiors by Kenz decided to make her own.

Using the IKEA Strandmon Wing Chair at a cool $279, McKenzie ordered a pair of unfinished rocking chair runners online, stained them, drilled holes, and attached them to the legs of the chair. When she was finished, McKenzie had a gorgeous and one-of-a-kind rocker for her nursery for $335 - less than half the price of most wingback rockers on the market, which typically run $800 or more.
