We had some good friends in town visiting before Christmas. One afternoon with no plans, and they got suckered into tagging along with me to two mid-century stores I had yet to go to in search of our nursery rocker. As one of my favorites would say: “bazinga.” Hehe.
Well, lo and behold, the last store we went to FINALLY had a chair that would work! (I’d been to like 9-10 mid-century stores in the past few weeks.) Our friends must’ve been good luck. Especially because they had a checkbook. And I didn’t. Nor did I have cash. And the store didn’t take plastic. I bargained a bit off the pricetag, and we walked out with a chair for $100. And then, our friends decided to gift us the chair…because they’re that cool.
So, here she is (along with a very pretty model):
What I like about it: it rocks, but it doesn’t look like a rocker. It’s in really good shape. It doesn’t stink. It’s green, and goes with the theme. It was cheap (compared to everything that I like). It makes me happy.
What Brady likes about it: his knees touching his chin when he sits in it. LOL. So, maybe it’ll be used by me the most. That probably would’ve been the case anyway.
I also scored the ottoman pouf on Etsy. Oh, how I love Etsy. I’ll need to find a sidetable for next to the chair and some bright/fun pillows for lumbar support.
