One of my good friends called a couple of weeks ago & said that she was buying her granddaughter a rocking chair for her birthday and wanted to know if I could personalize the chair for her by adding her granddaughter's name & any other girly touches I wanted!
Seeing how I am surrounded in a house full of boys, I was thrilled to have the opportunity to girly up anything!!
So, of course, I said "yes."
She purchased the chair at Lowe's for her granddaughter & brought to my house.
This is what it looked like before....
It really is a nice little rocker & sturdy too!!
This is what it looked like after I girlied it up a bit....
What do you think?!?
Do you love it?
This was such a fun project!! And easy too!!
I've decided now, after a million different projects with scrapbook paper, that the possibilities are endless!! I found some cute & girly scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby that I liked & decided that I would cut her name out with my Cricut machine & decoupage it onto the back of the chair with Mod Podge.
So that's what I did!
After adding her name & the little flower to the back of the chair, I decided it need a little something extra, so I added the little bows with the hot pink & white polka dot ribbon...
Because, really, what girl doesn't like polka dot?!?
Especially, pink polka dot!?!
I secured the bows with a little hot glue as well...
And if you're wondering & thinking to yourself...
"I've never seen any of her pictures with this back-drop before."
That's because I packed the chair up & took it down to the park for a photo shoot....
Yep, that's right...
The people at the park were looking at me strange & wondering why I was carrying this little rocker from place to place to take pictures of it...especially when there wasn't anyone sitting in it!!
Don't mind me people....
I'm just a crazy blogger who wants a pretty back-drop for my project reveal!!
Is that too much to ask?!?
