Colorful Rockers

These sweet little rocking chairs were $5 yard sale finds. Both were good looking as is, but I thought they needed a little color to fit in my little girls' bedrooms.

The blue chair with pink polka dots belongs to Maya. The polka dots are rub on decals that I had left over from Maya's headboard. I love the touch of whimsy they add. And the purple chair belongs to Wren. Who currently loves to climb up and rock with a good picture book. The stickers on hers are wall decals that will come off easily, but they take a little paint along with them. In hind site, I wish I would have used a rub on decal, like on Maya's. But this is what I had on hand. It still looks cute, as long as Wren keeps her little hands off them (so far so good).

All in all each chair cost less than $20. They are both nice, solid wood chairs that will hopefully last forever and can be passed on through generations. That's more than most $20 chairs can say.
