Rocking Chair Fall Redo



I am participating in MET MONDAY at Between Naps on the Porch. Head on over and check out the other great blogger makeovers, you won't be disappointed.





This is a rocking chair that belonged to my husband's great-grandmother. We don't usually sit in it, not because it is uncomfortable, but because we don't want to put too much wear on it.
It is fun however, because I can make simple changes with pillows and throws for each season.

Pictured here is how it sits with the every day accessories.

.This is how it was transformed for fall. Doesn't all of the warm fall colors make you want to grab a cup of hot chocolate and a good book and relax for an afternoon reading session.

Love the change for the seasons, I always do that even though I am in ca. I put away all the white pillows or put covers on them that are warmer, and bring out all the throws....get my hot chocolate now...lol

Well that is just the cutest thing, the way you change it for the seasons - and look at the "caning"??? I don't remember what it's called when a chair has that woven kind of seat, but something like that. What a neat piece of furniture - and history!! ♥
