Beautiful Antique RockerOctober 22nd, 2012 in member junk
I found this antique rocker at a barn sale in the back of the barn covered in dirt! It was solid mahogany and had stunning hand-carved details!! I knew with some (or a lot!) of tlc it could be a real show piece... It was missing the seat (the one in the photo was the wrong size and not attached) and actually had tar splattered on it I had to chisel off! The original tuffed leather just crumbled if you touched it so I stripped it all off and re-upholstered it in an off-white cotton canvas. After refinishing the wood the hand-carved details really stood out beautifully!
