I must be doing something right!

Last weekend I checked out the local home furnishings store, Swallows Nest. Swallow's Nest is a great store for getting ideas. For someone cheap like me it's not where I'll be buying furniture or home accessories but I love checking out their inventory.

When I got inside I scoped out this shabby chic rocking chair that looked darn close to my rocking chair. The chairs are quite similar in look and finish but there was one big difference - the price! My rocking chair was a mucky brown and cost $5 then of course my time refinishing it. Their rocking chair was $225!

I also saw this kids rocking chair that was $85. It's quite different from my $1 kids rocking chair but definitely gave me food for thought. I can't imagine paying $85 for the brown rocking chair versus $1 for my updated rocking chair! Gotta love having the time and space to refinish furniture!
