I was so happy that circumstances put this chair in my path at just the right time and for a great price. I knew its scale, tufted back and the fact that it rocked would be perfect for the nursery...and it is.
Since the moment I got it, I envisioned redoing the chair in a pink buffalo check and I never abandoned the idea, even through a couple of design schemes. And I got very lucky that once I decided to pull the trigger I came across the perfect fabric for only $5/yard during our beach trip this summer.
Throw in some red fabric for piping and my favorite upholsterer Hakan and I have one fantastic little nursery chair on my hands!
The chair looks completely bomb in the nursery and it's super comfy. Hakan of Simply Upholstery might be one of my favorite people on earth because he makes my upholstery visions come true...and always better than I expected.
So one teensy regret? I didn't do the buttons on the back in red! DOH! I thought about it and decided not to for some crazy reason. Carter was a little skeptical about the red trim so maybe he scared me away from the buttons? Can I blame him for this? Totally not a big deal...the chair looks amazing...but the pop of little red buttons on the back would be killer.
Thanks to my sister-in-law Joanna for Andi! And I picked up the cute pillow in the perfect shade of yellow at Target.
