I let all of my garage saling, antique store looking friends know what I was looking for. And one of the girls who works for me (love you Joy!) found this rocker and footstool for me THAT very same day at an antique store. The rocker was $40 and the footstool $20. They didn't match, but it didn't matter!
I had my designer girlfriend help me select fabrics that I could afford at JoAnn's crafts and waited for them to go on sale! I also got several estimates from small companies that specialize in recovering furniture.
My designer friend also suggested that I recover the 2 sides of the seat cushion with different fabric on each side so I could flip it as I wish. She is a genius and knows I tire of things easily!
We did sweet chenille on one side and a plaid on the other. Viola! My rocking chair was recovered.
