We bought this glider on December 23, 2005. I remember it well because I was 8.5 months pregnant with our first son. He wasn't due for 6 more days so I was glad to have the glider as an early Christmas present. Now this is not an expensive piece of furniture but it definitely serves it's purpose. I assembled the glider as soon as we brought it home (from KMart) ~ I love to assemble things~ and right before we headed out for a Christmas party. Of course, that very night after the party, I went into labor and the next morning delivered our Christmas Eve baby boy. One thing I neglected to think about was how dirty things get around babies~ diapers, spit up, etc. I really should have Scotch-guarded the whole chair.
Fast forward to this week. I've washed the chair pads many times and it really looks pretty bad. It may be "clean" but appeared shabby. And not in the good way. So I decided to recover the chair. I saw really beautiful toile fabrics at JoAnn fabrics for $15- $25/ yard, but I decided on the Walmart version for under $6/ yard. I think it turned out pretty well. And I remembered to use ScotchGuard.
It looks expensive, doesn't it? This whole project cost around $15.
