There is a wonderful art gallery here in Madison. Every year they have an Art Re-Swap. The community is invited to bring in unused crafty items and in turn take what they would like. If you don't have anything to donate then they ask for a $5 donation. All proceeds go to an art program they offer for children. Smiley
Just as my friend and I were leaving I spotted a beautiful rocking chair frame that just begged to come home with me. This is what it looked like after I had cleaned up the springs and added some webbing to the back:

Shot with the kitty!
I also had to give it a good polishing. I found a quick easy recipe online that made the wood look gorgeous!

The cat always takes the best seat in the house! It must be very comfy.
