Wicker child's rocker

    I bought this cute vintage style rocker a while back.  I paid a little more than I normally would, but it was a sale benefiting women and children, so I prefer to over pay a bit for charities, especially when it is by donation.  It was painted white and because of the many layers and some older repairs, it may very well be vintage.
    I chose a sunny yellow and mint that would be gender neutral.  After repairs, some of which are visible, I covered the seat with canvas, securing it with hot glue.  Several coats of poly were applied to protect the wicker and then I made a cushion with new foam and pastel dinosaur fabric. 
    The floor to the seat measurement is about 10 1/2 in.  The pad is about 2 in thick.  From the floor to the top of the back is about 23 inches.
    This would be adorable in a nursery, or even at Grandma's house, where it could hold quilts between grandchild visits!
