Convert a Wingback Chair to a Rocking Chair

With a baby on the way, the last thing Kenz from Interiors By Kenz wants to do is frivolously spend money. That’s why she found a way around spending a fortune on the wingback rocking chair she wanted for the nursery by instead looking for the perfect chair to convert. The answer came in the IKEA Strandmon wingback chair which Kenz combined with some unfinished runners she found online to create the ultimate rocking experience!

Kenz was inspired by the Empire Rocker from Nursery Works.
