I always whinge about not being able to pick up anything good at garage sales. In seems that i frequent sales that have horrible old foul rubbish for sale.
But a couple of years ago, while pregnant with Master M, i found a beaten up, scratched old rocking chair, all the timber was scratched and all the material had rotted away. I picked it up for $15 , squished it in the back of my car , and had grand plans to do it all up.
4 or so years later when we left the property , it was still in the shed. So, my Mother in Law has restored it for me.
I am very impressed with her work , and only wish i had taken a picture before it was done up.
No idea where it will fit into our new home, but i am sure we will find somewhere.
