Some of you told me that Ikea furniture isn't the most comfortable while others swore by it. However, once I researched a little more, it turns out that my chair was not the cheapest to ship. I would probably end up spending and extra several hundred dollars just to get the chair to my house. Not to mention, there's a good chance it would require some assembling and then need the rocker attachment added like I want. So Ikea? OUT.
Several of you sent me links to different chairs I could consider, mostly from Babies R Us, Target and even WalMart. These options turned out to be much more realistic because 1) shipping was either super cheap or free and 2) I could just purchase a rocker instead of creating one. The decision really came down to how easily I could get my new chair to my house and in the end, WalMart won. For a semi-reasonable price, and thanks to Debbie and Kelsey for the recommendation, I was able to get a super comfortable glider/swivel chair and have it shipped site-to-store for free.
Ok, I'm done talking. Here's your sneak peek at my nautical nursery.
I felt like I needed to clarify that it's NAUTICAL not red-white-and-blue-God-bless-America themed. Turns out the color palette I chose made for a very patriotic combination. And that pretty crocheted blanket on the chair? That, my friends, is courtesy of my very talented friend Marissa at Sugar and Bean. She got the color combo right on and the blanket is adorable.
So there you have it! You'll have to wait until the nursery really is complete before I do a full reveal. There's a few things that need to be hung on the walls and there's still baby junk that needs to be put away. And by baby junk, I mean thousands of onesies that have made their way to my house and still need to be washed. This kid has more clothes than Carrie Bradshaw.
Oh! But while I'm on the subject of babies/nurseries/etc... I need to take a second and congratulate my cousin Kristin on the birth of her beautiful baby boy. George Edward (named after my late uncle) was born this morning at 2:15 a.m, weighing a tiny 5 lbs 10 oz and he's perfect in every way. Mom and baby are both doing just fine and I can't wait to meet him!! Congrats Tom and Kristin on your new addition!
And now, we wait for mine. I'm getting impatient and my ribs hurt.
