Simple problem simple solution.
I have a wonderful rocking chair given to me by my parents. It is an amazing heirloom (5 generations old). I love rocking my son to sleep in it. There is just one thing that would make it easier and that is a footstool. I have to keep my ankles flexed when I am rocking and just a couple inches of support would really help. So I decided to use some of the things around the house to make a footstool. Here is what I did:
1.) Took an old drawer that didn’t belong to anything and turned it upside down.
2.) I padded the told with batting
3.) Wrapped the drawer with fabric and stapled the fabric into place
I don’t have any great plans for the drawer front but this has worked great for me. I am a little more relaxed and comfortable while rocking my son to sleep. Yeah!
