Lorrie Dunn. Rocking Chair. February 27th , 2018.
European in origin, the rocking chair is also thoroughly American. President Lincoln greatly enjoyed the comfort of his chair. He was relaxing in one at the theater on the night he was assassinated. One of the first things President Kennedy did after taking office was to install a rocking chair in the oval office. Unlike any other piece of furniture, wicker rocking chairs are among one of the most popular handed down pieces of furniture. The design of these chairs, offer unique benefits that are therapeutic to those who relax in them.
Rocking chairs are enjoyed in every room in the home. They are often the first chair grabbed in the living room. It is also an essential accessory for every nursery. With the proper rocking chair plans, you can fill your home, deck, and porch with beautiful rockers, and keep your costs in check. If you're planning to build a wide variety of rockers, you may want to purchase a package group of rocking chair plans, instead of needing to invest in separate plans all the time. You can find some great bundles, with many different chairs for very inexpensive prices.
It wasn't until we were expecting our first little one that I thought about rocking chairs again. Sure I had sat in many a chair since I was a child, but never thought about buying one for our household. Having a newborn means sleepless nights and tired Mommies and Daddies. Anything you can do to help soothe that new little baby and get him to sleep is a blessing. Having a chair that helped us rock our child to sleep during that time made our job so much easier. I can remember spending hours upon hours rocking my little one to sleep, only to be back in the same chair an hour or two later. This time was special and I look back on that time like it was yesterday. I'm glad I had that one-on-one time to bond with my baby and just watch him fall asleep with the rocking motion. Even today, as my kids are older, they still will crawl up into my lap for a snuggle in our favorite chair. They never tire of the way it makes them feel, and this chair is always a favorite place for story time before bed.
Do you remember that special day when you received your very own childs rocking chair or rocking horse as a young kid? For me it was the classic rocking horse on my 3rd birthday. Oh what a wonderful birthday! I was suddenly the mighty cowboy riding on my trusted horse (through the dry and hot desert) fighting Indians as I went. It is amazing how ingrained in my memory is this little horse on a frame with four springs. Then as I grew a little older, I remember getting a real childrens chair that had my name on it and was painted camouflage to match my GI Joe decorated room. Kids rocking chairs are a very memorable piece of furniture because they are a great toy, they can fit in with the bedroom décor, and can bring hours of quality time with a loved one.
The most critically constructed and designed chair in the home is the one for rocking your baby, or child. This chair not only needs to be comfortable and safe, but needs to last a lifetime. You are filling this chair full of memories, as you rock your child to sleep. By building your own memorable chair with your own two hands, the chair becomes even more memorable. With a set of easy to follow rocking chair plans, it is much easier than you'd imagine. This chair you lovingly create will become a family heirloom, and one you may wish to hand down to your children when they start their own families many years in the future.
