Why are nursery glider chairs so ugly?
No, I’m not pregnant. I’m just taking advantage of the fact that for the first time in six years, Brian and I are roommate-free and can decorate the rest of our house the way we’d like it. So I’m turning the pink, Audrey Hepburn room into something new. I don’t know how to describe that something new except that there’s no pink, more Navajo White and major black and green accents.
We’ve got an exciting, black trundle day bed coming. Now all we need is an awesome chair.
Here’s the hitch: One day this bedroom is likely to turn into a nursery. I don’t want to invest in a snazzy chair only to boot it out when I need a glider. And I DO see myself as the gliding-type. So I googled gliders yesterday. I figured that if I could envision the perfect high-back, funky-patterned chair with maroon accents… well, surely that could come in something that glides, right? NO. Gliders are ugly. They’re almost all just beige, just baby pink, just baby blue, blah blah blah. What few gliders I’ve found that actually have pattern are still just plain old crap.
I’ve never personally upholstered anything, but I’m considering learning how to do that. Because…
I WANT A SQUUUUUUUUAAAARE PIECE!
Somebody save me from myself.
