Grannie’s Girl

Say you have some sort of family item that has been handed down generation, to generation, to you.  What would Gram-Gram prefer?  That you freshen up her old chair in a way that delights you so much that you catch yourself gazing at it in happiness at least once a day? Or letting it collect dust in a corner of the attic that might as well be labeled “Stuff I Feel Like I Have to Keep.” 

No brainer!  Check out more from Ashley and her Great Grannie’s chair on her blog Ashlilium.

  1. That fabric is GORGEOUS!

  2. Looks great! Bravo to Ashley for being featured!

  3. Hi Lindsey! Oh, this looks wonderful! I love that fabric she chose and painting it white is so pretty. I have a chair like this and recovered it in a bright lime green fabric. They don’t look very comfortable but these little rockers really are!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

  4. I’m lovin’ it sick! Gorgeous fabric 🙂

  5. This is a really awesome redo! I had pretty much given up on a similar chair that my mother has but now I’m reconsidering!!!

  6. My jaw actually dropped. Way to go girl!

  7. great make over… I think that granny chair always wanted to look like, that she just didn’t know she could!

  8. I have this EXACT same chair! It’s been sitting around waiting to be refinished. Maybe I’ll submit mine when it’s done. Great motivation!

  9. What a great makeover! I’d even want this chair in my apartment!


  10. I have this same exact chair…except mine is needle point cover. I love the new look! Hmm…wish mine was worn so I woun’t feel quilty recovering it. Love what you did with yours!

  11. It took me forever to paint the dark hutch that was left to my from my Grandma. One day I decided she was always changing things up in her house and would probably be mad at me for “keeping it real” and went for it. I think we’re both happier.

  12. Thank-you, thank you for this post and your encouragement!!! I redid my rocker last night and it came out great! It was very easy so much easier than I thought it would be. I would have never attempted it if I had not seen yours. Thanks agian…you can view mine redo here.
