I love this old rocker but it had seen better days. The wicker bands around the legs were broken and the arms were loose from the frame. To capture the reeds and shore everything up, I used a rayon white cord to bind and tie the wicker to the frame. To make sure the slippery knots did not come undone, I soldered the knots with hot glue and then spray painted the rocker.
Here is the finished product with its new gingham seat cushion. It will be part of the furniture grouping on our newly painted covered porch–when the porch gets painted.
