When my mother-in-law came to stay with us for two months, we wanted to give her something special. She’s in her early seventies and is such a voracious reader. She loves staying outdoors, surrounded by greenery. So we thought, why not combine the two?
My husband decided to give her her own spot in the garden. She deserves a place where she can relax and immerse herself in one of her many books. Searching for something that would be a not-so-complicated yet worthwhile build, my husband found a garden rocking chair project. Going over the instructions and seeing how the finished product would look like, we knew it was exactly what we wanted.
My mother-in-law absolutely loved it. It’s comfortable to sit on she’d be in it for the most part of the day. If you’re looking for a great project that’s totally worth your while, this garden rocking chair is highly recommended.
