This is my first time posting  Cheesy
This is a old fashion rocking chair for a kid that I got from second-hand store for $20. It has a yellow music box attached to the bottom of the chair so when you rock on it, it turns to music box and starts to play music. It's really neat!
When I saw the challenge I already make a few changes to the chair, so the follow picture is my attempt to recreate the original chair via photoshop


So I cut off the arms of the chair, removed the music box and attached a 1''x1'' shaft to the chair.



I sanded the chair, stained the chair to a darker color, put a finishing coat on it, then I started painting details onto the chair
This is after staining and painting:

You can see that I drilled a hole on the 1''x1'' so that later on I can attach handle for the rocking chair. Also if you looking at the bottom of the chair where the music box was, I attached the music box component (without the box yet).

This picture is the final product:


Top view


Back view


I painted the front of the back rest "blow pop"


And I painted the back of the back rest "reese's"


A shot of the music box that I finished painting "wonka bar" and put on the chair

Close up:



I hope you guys liked it. This project is all about my obsession with candy. I had so much fun making this project. The music box works perfectly and It's so cute. I'm planning on giving this to my bf's niece but my roommate says that I should keep it for when I have a kid ... lol
Thanks for looking  Grin

Yeah, the idea is a rocking horse exactly. The tootsie roll is made kinda like a plush sock that slip right onto the wooden shaft. You (or a kid) can rock by holding onto the handles or the tootsie roll Wink

No, porkydork, you're not the only one. I had to take a second look!

It's cute though. I love the candy theme, and the Tootsie Roll is a good idea, even if it is a little dirty.  Tongue

no...I totally thought that the blow pop and the big tootsie roll was a play on eroticism till I read the part about giving it to children... maybe I have it on the brain... (hubby just got home from a week away...kids aren't sleeping yet...argh)

Hahahahaha... I was so caught up with the process of making the chair that I totally didn't notice the link between the blow pop and the tootsie roll until I finished the whole thing and showed it to everyone and have them ask.... uhmmm is that suppose to be an "adult toy"..... lol

Gah! I love it! I'm eating a candy cane right now, so I especially appreciate the bottom part. The Wonka bar looks super-fabulous too. I think I have to agree with you roomie, definitely keep it!  Wink

ROFL! Okay, so I am not the only one with a sick mind.

On a side note, I love the chair! Your reproductions of the candy & logos are near perfect!
