Rocking Chair

    We lived in a large old house in Norman, Oklahoma when first married. In that house I used large pieces of furniture like this but when we moved to an apartment in Dallas these were too large so we sold it all. As we went through one sofa after another I, in the back of my mind, wished for these earlier pieces and determined to purchase them if I ever found any. Over the years this western style went out and no matter how much I looked there were never any to be found. Last week I ran on to this piece at the Salvation Army. I was elated. We brought this home, sanded it down, stained it with an old English Oak color and put three coats of Varathane over that. Rodney replaced the broken seat and back with new wood. Now with those cushions used for summer patio furniture we will have a heavy, durable rocking chair. This is what I've wanted for so long. The wooden arms are easily waxed with furniture polish and: therefore, always clean. Usually cushions for outdoor patio furniture have tough, heavy fabric that can easily be wiped clean.
