Turning a Chair into a Swivel Rocker
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Materials: Ektorp Jennylund Chair, swivel rocker base and hardware, a 2x4, a 1x2, a piece of 3/4" plywood, scissors, wood screws
Description: We had searched tirelessly for a rocker or glider to put in our baby's room.
First of all, they are expensive.
Secondly, they are almost always HUGE. Even if we were able to find one we liked for cheap, it probably wouldn't fit in our itty-bitty nursery.
Thirdly, we wanted a white upholstered rocker but couldn't find one with a washable slip cover and we refused to pay over $500 for something that would be ruined if anything ever spilled on it, (which is inevitable in a child's room).
Everything out there was either too large or way too expensive.
So, what were we to do?
Turn to IKEA, of course.
