Treasure Chest Thursday: Great-Grandpa’s Rocking Chair

Last month, we picked up this rocking chair from my husband’s grandma.  Her parents, Clyde and Rose (Hollingsworth) Davidson, had it since they first set up house.  Clyde rocked his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren in that chair.  It is truly a family heirloom and we are very thankful to have it.

My husband is a great woodworker.  He sanded the old varnish off and simply oiled it down.  Isn’t it beautiful?  The last part of his project is putting a new cushion on the seat.  I love old furniture, especially pieces that have family history like this one.

    I’m sure you’ll all enjoy rocking in it all the more, thinking about all the family who have sat in it :-) ReplyCancel

    What a wonderful heirloom to have! The only thing better than a rocking chair is one broken in by your family.ReplyCancel
