Rocky Rocky

I thrifted this little beauty with my sis and mom last week.  I pretty much fell in love instantly.  Shena and I spotted it immediately.  I practically ran to it and hugged it.  The yellow paint was so cute and chippy.  The only issue was the dingy fabric.  I actually liked the original fabric but it was really gross so it had to go.  

After a good scrub down and some pretty new fabric, aka, old curtains, this little guy shined up SO CUTE!  I mean, I didn't even have to paint it:)

Originally I wanted to keep it, but my monkey of a 19 month old took a head dive off of it leaving a big old goose egg on her forehead.  At that point I decided it would be better off in a home with an older... slightly less top heavy kiddo.  Not that she won't find something else to climb up on.  I basically would have to live in a completely padded house to keep that kid out of trouble.  I guess that would classify as an insane asylum so really that would be fitting in our house.

Happy Wednesday everyone!
