So here is what I have been doing the last couple of weeks. I am starting to produce more and more of these rocking chairs so I thought I needed to finish the one I started for my own Son first. We have a favorite book we love to read together called "Just mommy and me" It is about a little boy who pretends he and his mom are monkeys and they spend the day in the forest together. Michael loves it, we read it and then pretend we are Monkeys all day long. I figured it would be fun to do his rocking chair based on the book. But, it turns out the fact that I have not ever taken an art class came into play more than I thought it would so we did most of the chair in a jungle theme and the rest we just kind of played with.
These are the outside pieces, front and back. sides
This is a picture of the back and the seat. The Rhino and orange snake was the original back of the chair that I decided was not good enough so I redid it. MIchael has a cousin who we recently learned likes chamo. so we decided to put a piece of Tanner on the back of the chair. The Key matches the shorts of the monkey from the book. These rocking chairs are so fun, My kids love to take them apart and put them together again. I am no Smee but, I think it was well worth the effort.
