This week's CV is 'Repurposed - one object in your house that you've found another use for.'
Seems my eco-friendliness isn't quite up to scratch! I searched around, really I did, but couldn't find anything that had had a different purpose in its former life. I thought I'd failed miserably this week.
Then.... I remembered this. It's not quite repurposed, but it has been around for 42 years and has now been used by 3 separate children, so maybe it can be counted as having another useage (no ?).
This little rocker was mine at aged 1 yr - a gift from my Aunty Carol. It used to be covered in burgundy and black check fabric which over the years became so worn. And I obviously used to have a good scratch at the wooden arms which are scarred with all manner of lines.
When my son Luca was born, my mum had it recovered for him in this blue cord Ikea fabric. He's had loads of fun rocking back and forth (and falling off !). Now its the turn of my little girl Ruby. She likes to climb up and think she's all grown up sitting there with a book babbling away. I may add a girly touch and sew on some little flowers for her. Maybe it will even get passed onto my grandchildren (yikes) one day.
