This childs rocker was very worn out. It had a broken rocker and the seat was a woven wicker that was rotting. I basically redeemed it. I removed the old seating and made a new rocker. Then I sanded the old finish off. For the seat, I had the option of going with either new wicker or making a cushion seat. I decided on the cushion because I believe it would be more durable and sure would be less time consuming than trying weave it. I made the seat in such a way that it can be easily removed but yet fit tight enough that there would absolutely be no slippage.
