A Chair Affair

S’up, Pop-tarts. How’ve you been this past week? What have you been up to? Me? Oh, ya know, just running into door frames and such because I keep miscalculating the girth of my pregnant belly.

I’ve also been on a mad hunt for a rocking chair for our nursery. With my due date of August 1st fast approaching, we need to find something STAT. I’ve had my heart set on finding a dark wood spindle rocking chair and adding custom upholstered cushions, but after scouring antique shops in both Minneapolis and Northern Wisconsin and having no luck, I am starting to get discouraged. Perhaps this is the universe’s way of telling me what every parent I know has been telling me: “YOU NEED SOMETHING MORE COMFORTABLE THAN THAT!”

So I’m starting to warm up to the idea of the more cushy look. Perhaps we will get crafty and add some rocking chair runners to the bottom of an upholstered wingback like this. Or perhaps you guys were planning on chipping in and buying us this bad boy (which I wouldn’t be mad about). Regardless, we need to find something fast because I don’t think mama’s gonna have the energy to rock her bod back and forth in a rhythmic pattern at 3am sans rocking chair.

Of course, now that I’ve been searching for rockers online (how many times have I said “rock/rocker/rocking” now?), I’ve come across all sorts of other killer chairs I’d love to have. Maybe it’s the fact that all I feel like doing these days is SITTING, but I just can’t seem to get chairs off my brain. Below is a round up of my faves – that black and white windowpane plaid chair is the JAM,  ain’t it?
