This bamboo rocker was in pretty good shape, but wasn’t particular inspiring with its original brown hues. Rachel decided that for it to really work in a nook in her boy’s room, it needed a color boost!

From Rachel:

I bought this vintage bamboo rocker on the last day of an estate sale for $10, hoping it wold work in our son’s room. This was a super simple project; requiring only primer, paint and a faux shearling throw. I considered re-covering the old cushions, but they were pretty gross so opted for the shearling instead. The rocker is just the right size for the corner, and makes a nice little reading spot.

Wow! So simple yet a sweet upgrade. It looks perfect in this room nook. To see more photos of this rocker makeover plus find out the exact breakdown of costs, visit Rachel’s website.

Thank you Rachel!
