I found an old rocker in the dumpster and decided to rebuild it.

I took this...



and made it look like this.

Aww, that's really cute! Great job recycling something that would have just gone to the dump. It's a shame how much good stuff with amazing potential gets thrown out!

Thank you all for your lovely comments.

Since the petabees decided that I did not reconstruct this rocker, I thought I should post the picture that I started with.  This is how it looked when I took it out of the dumpster.

What a wonderful eye you have for saving stuff!  I know so many people would have seen that pile and called it a total loss!

Your hard work and skills turned it into something practical and beautiful!
