Life is so uneventful right now...

...that all I have to post about is a chair. Let me rephrase it, however, it's not exactly "uneventful." Last week, having three kids went from difficult and ratcheted up to really friggin' difficult, with a dash of harder than crap and a twist of pull-my-hair-out frustrating. But I love being a mom, don't get me wrong, I have the three best boys ever. It's just... you know... really hard. ANYWAY...

We bought this yellow chair about three years ago at Salvation Army. I love me some color and print, and I needed a rocking chair. But my love affair with it has faded. It doesn't bring me flowers anymore, and I can't remember the last time it took me on a date. Seriously, though, the stuffing is coming out, it's dirty, clashes with my new curtains, is full of cat scratches, and the wooden rockers on the bottom are major hazards. I have smacked my ankle, stubbed my toe while the boys have smacked their head more times than I can count on those rockers. And it hurts! And oh, yeah, my biggest gripe?  When you rock in it, which I rock Corgan all the time, you migrate across the floor.  It's so slow, you can't tell it's happening, but suddenly you are across the room from where you started.  We've been wanting a different chair for a while, and we found the PERFECT one on Craigslist for CHEAP. Seriously, CHEAP. And it's nice. I was so excited.
Still love that pattern, but goodbye.

No more clashing with my curtains! No more stubbed toes! No more bumps on heads! And so comfy! YAY!

Oh! Looks comfy for sure, so when can i come over and take a nap on it? LOL!

Missy said...

I want to come sit in it! You need a pillow or throw to put on it to tie it all together!

Kelli said...

I do, don't I? Why are throw pillows so expensive???

I love Craig's List. I've found some of our best stuff off of there!

Shannon said...

Oh, you gotta hit up kohls, sometimes during their crazy sales, throw pillows are way cheap. Or if you find some material you love ( an old shirt even!), i could make you one!

Yuup,leather means easy spill wipe-age, I agree. super comfy, but yeah, it's sad about your cute yellow chair. it's so cheery! ps. i almost shot milk through my nose when i read about it stealthily creeping across the room when you rocked on it. too funny.

Orrr, you can go buy that owl pillow that matches your soap dispenser and sit it on your new chair. May not go with your "look" but it's totally you, don't you think? lol
