While at my favorite thrift shop in the West Palm area, I found a wooden rocking bear for $5. It was pretty creepy in its original state! (My roommates jokingly gave me a hard time about it before I had the chance to work on it. I could definitely see the potential in spite of the weird little smile and the blue neck bow.
I had looked up a lot of vintage stuffed animals with floral prints, so that is what I was going for- a floral bear. Kira's favorite colors are Tinkerbell green and Sleeping beauty pink :) I added a little cindy blue and used a vintage floral pattern I found as a template. It turned out really beautiful, one of my favorite pieces ever. The vintage pattern is still one of my go-to's when it comes to reclaiming furniture. And of course, my niece makes it the very cutest when she herself is modeling it :) Love you Ki-ki.
