After much toil and tribulation I FINALLY figured out what to do with the daggone glider chair arms! Here is a picture of the glider before (in our old house):
The pink kitty fabric was the first re-do of this chair. The arms gave me fits and I decided not to try to upholster the arms again. This time I got smart and make a little slip cover, and I even put in a pocket for Caroline’s favorite bed-time book!
