Completely nontraditional but super fun…introducing our Rockasan from Pier 1:
|www.pier1.com – We are painting the base white and have a turquoise cushion.|
Have you ever sat in a regular Papasan chair from Pier 1? Well you’re totally missing out if you haven’t. It’s the most comfy thing ever…and the Rockasan is the exact same chair but with a rocking base. Some people may think it looks like it’s from the 70’s and it might very well be…but I find it extremely hip (who knows, maybe I’m a hippy at heart?)! I’ve never had a room that I could ‘pull the chair off in’, if you know what I mean…I didn’t want to look like a recent college grad, ha! But a nursery is one of those rooms that you can have some fun in…and I figured why not get the chair? Plus my ultimate goal for the nursery is that I want it to be a welcoming, warm, and comfortable place. I’m not trying to win any awards for design. 😉
I had been warned that it would be hard to get out of with a baby (thanks for all the feedback on the Facebook page ladies!)…and that sent me on a mission to try it out at our local store. Well, honestly the regular Papasan was a tad tricky to get out of but after trying the Rockasan, the rocking motion actually helps you to get up pretty easily! I was sold!
We bought a furry teal cushion and some fabulous pillows (I will try to post a picture tomorrow). Once we got it into the nursery and set up…something was off though. Yep, it’s a little bulky but that wasn’t it. Hmmm…it was that the frame was brown and clashed with the turquoise and white walls. Solution = primer, glossy white spray paint, and a tough sealant. This will by my DIY project (or Hubby’s with me looking over his shoulder) tomorrow. 🙂 I promise to post pics as soon as it dries!
