Rocking chair re-do

We spotted this rocking chair at a garage sale months before we bought the house.  
There was no room for it in our last place and now that we are in the house, 
we are still not sure where it will go! 

But we couldn't resist. We knew with just some new fabric, this chair would be pretty great.

And we were right, right?
It was worth every penny ($40 to be exact). 

Despite its original not-so-attractive fabric, we focused on the shape of the chair and the wood detail. Sometimes you gotta look past the ugly to see the potential!

The fabric we re-covered the chair in is from Ballard Designs.
It was pricey per yard but the chair didn't require much. And re-covering it was pretty easy. We just used a staple gun.

Now...where to put it?

Happy Friday!
