My rocking chair squeaked so loudly it kept everyone awake, which defeats the whole purpose! But the other day I found a lonely one sitting outside a neighbor’s house waiting for some TLC. Thank you generous neighbors! I LOVE freebies! I adopted it & freecycled my old one (if you’re not familiar, www.freecycle.org is an awesome Yahoo group where you can give & receive old items for free in your community so they don’t end up in the dump) not before swapping my nice cushions I had made for the previous chair. They’re not an exact fit, but I can fix that later. However the footstool was atrocious, so had to be fixed right away.
Luckily I had some fabric left over from when I had made cushions for my old squeaky chair. With the help of my favorite apprentice, my son, we covered it in no time! Just cut the fabric to fit, folded it over, & stapled it with a staple gun to the underside.
Wallah! A beautiful footstool to match. Now if only we can get rid of the squeak in this new chair… At least it’s not nearly as bad!
