Every year I seem to have a stand-out favorite Christmas project. This year I'd have to pick this amazing heirloom Christmas gift transformation. Aaron Shipley contacted me back in September about his Great-Great-Grandmother's Lincoln rocker he wanted to bring back to life and give to his son and daughter-in-law for Christmas. Aaron sent photos along the way of the chair's transformation before it was brought in to be caned- the finishing touch.
Both the seat and the back got brand new hand caning.
"I wanted to send a note to point out how thrilled we are with the cane work. The finished rocker exceeded our expectations and we're ecstatic. I'd like to think my g-g-grandmother is smiling."
Always good to hear!
Quite a transformation- I hope many more generations will get to use and enjoy this heirloom rocker!
