One of my all time favorite projects is my DIY Wingback Rocker.
One year later it’s holding up like a champion of all chairs! In fact, I’m writing this post sitting in this chair right now. I’ve spent hundreds of hours rocking precious Evelyn Faye in this chair.
What I didn’t expect was how many people would follow my tutorial and make their own. Some have blogs, and some don’t. But the emails have poured in of your beautiful rockers, and I’m going to show them off!
This nursery is from a reader named Daniel.
This is Chelsie’s nursery.
This rocker comes from nursery at The Shaker House. They used a different chair than the Strandmon, and I think it looks awesome in the Marine Corps inspired room.
This rocker is from the outdoorsy nursery for Fletcher at 100layercakelet
This rocker is in the Modern Marine nursery at Newlyweds North.
And this last rocker is in the feminine travelesque nursery at Explore Dream Discover.
I love that even though these nurseries all have different themes and styles (I hope you clicked the links to check out the full rooms!!!) the rockers all fit in their element perfectly.

I’m really excited about today’s post. We have a guest post brought to us from Jen of The Yellow Brick Cottage. She is showing us something that she hasn’t even shown on HER blog yet! Do you feel special? You should. Jen is hilarious. You need to start reading her blog. She’s incredibly honest and un-sugarcoated. She knows how to turn a salmonella-carrying reptile into a Ninja Turtle, which is a cooler thing than lemons into lemonade.
Today’s Strut Your Stuff comes from a reader in Salt Lake City, Utah. She happens to be my name twin. And I happen to think she has great taste. She is also extremely witty and creative. Mackenzie is a broadcast designer at a local news station. Which is super bomb. She is even SO rad, she made this fresh frame. Take it away Kenzie!
STRUT YOUR STUFF!
Today’s strutting comes from Kiersti in Riverton, Utah. She’s so boss. I’ve known Kiersti for a long time. We lived in the same neighborhood for awhile when I was growing up. She was supposed to be my youth leader when I was a teenager, but we were more friends than anything. Now, she’s a rockin mama to 3 lovely girls, and a hardcore fun wife.
Kiersti had a vision of having a beautiful hall tree coat rack. She commissioned her husband to build her one.
He made it from an old door, a bench, and some crown molding. All things that you can pull out of your Marry Poppins carpet bag. Or find on your local classifieds. Same thing.
Strut Yo’ Stuffz
Today my friend Ellie (Lauren) is strutting a sign she made for her sweet baby’s nursery. Ellie’s blog, My Happy Thought is a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. She shares all the happy things about her, her husband, and baby Paisley. Go visit her and tell her Kenz says, “Word up.”
Today’s Strutting comes to you from Stephanie in central Massachusetts. She is a rad little cookie. She has a sensational blog called Sandpaper & Glue. She is a trash to treasure kind of girl. You’ll love her. Go over to her blog and give her ten million hugs!
Thrifty Thursday – Guest Post
Ah Thursday… the prelude to Friday… AND the day we celebrate our thrifty finds. Cheap things make my heart sing. This week’s Thrifty Thursday makeover is brought to us by Emma from Broke Ass Home. Our blog-love-story is a great one. Brought together by the hands of bloggersphere-fate. Her and I are new-found soul-cysters. Not only is she a great blogger, she is turning out to be a great friend! Emma is the queen of projects on pennies. Seriously, check her out. Look her up and down, and give her a wink. And tell her Kenz sent ya. Here is the story of how she worked magic on an ugly old lamp:
