So I'm not sure that I ever posted photos of our completed nursery, but I have a good reason. It's not really completed. We did get one step closer this week, though. I've been looking for some time for a rocking chair. No offense to you Mom's out there who love their gliders, but I am not a fan. First and foremost, because they don't mesh with the look I am going for...and I know, I know, but comfort isn't my first priority. I didn't want something uncomfortable, and Jordan wouldn't allow that, but I was looking for something pretty specific to go with my retro theme. I was pretty set on finding some sort of Danish looking-wooden framed-loosed cushioned-mod rocker, so I started scouring Craigslist and eBay. My budget was low, so I figured I'd at least have some reupholstering in my future (ask my poor cousin Candyce about my sad upholstery skills...her sofa and chair found out the hard way), but I didn't mind a fixer up-er. Finally after loosing multiple auctions on eBay because of my thriftiness, I found exactly what I was looking for and I won the auction! Jordan and I picked up our package from Greyhound on Tuesday and I couldn't wait to get it open.

Turns out the upholstery was in great shape and went great with our color scheme! A little wood polisher, and we were good to go. I've already been reading to Rylin at night in it, and I must say it's pretty comfy. My Mom texted me last week (yes, she is a texter now) that MiMi and Papa wanted to pay for it and that was even better!

The last item for the nursery is in the works. My Dad is making me a special table to sit next to my rocker. I promise to post more pics when everything is in place.

  1. Love the rocker! It's perfect! I wish I lived close enough to come see it (and Mr. Rylin) in person. :( Maybe we'll be up your way soon. Until then, keep the pictures coming!
