I just love this project from Ahna at Easier Than I Thought because it’s a true example of seeing potential and beauty where others see trash. Ahna took an ugly (and I mean UGLY) old rocker and turned it into a thing of beauty. Literally, it looks like it could be sitting right in Restoration Hardware’s catalog with its nailhead trim, gray-washed finish, and textural linen-like fabric. You’ve got to head over to Ahna’s site to appreciate this miraculous chair makeover and learn how you too can achieve that gorgeous look!
After attempting to recover an ottoman that she received from her sister, Jen from The Yellow Brick Cottage nearly gave up and threw it through the window.
