Sweet Rocking Chair Redo: Meet Adorable Adelaide

This sweet child’s rocking chair was gifted to Megan.
I have a little thing for little rocking chairs.
They are just cute.
One little repair was made by replacing a dowel and she was good to go for her makeover.
I named her Adorable Adelaide.
This was her before shot:
I discovered I could use the kids’ picnic table in other ways.
Sure wish I thought of that sooner.
And her after:

Told ya she was adorable.
How can you ever go wrong with yellow?
Goodbye Adelaide…you are off to the Blessed Nest!
