New old rocker

The local heritage museum (Haney House) is mounting some ‘vignettes’. One is centered around a painting done by a local artist at the turn of the century of a nursery with admiring uncles looking down at the new baby in the crib. The chair in the painting is a rocker wingback, slipcovered in a mottled blue fabric. They didn’t have a wing rocker, just this flat back one. I was asked to reproduce the rocker in the painting as best I could and this is the end result; the wings are fashioned of some cardboard and duct tape. What a fun project this is. I’ll be helping with the re-creation of window coverings in the main house as well.
