Need help with some ideas for this chair
February 5, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I just purchased this rocking chair from the want ads, and I need a little advice as to what I should do with it. I will be using this rocking chair in a nursery (not anytime soon), and have attached pictures of cribs that I really like. I was thinking of reupholstering the chair in maybe a white leather, or white naugahyde. Do I keep the two buttons, or get rid of them all together? The wood would be refinished in an espresso color. Is white a bad option? My MIL kept telling me that white would be a horrible decision, and it would get so dirty and dusty, and to go with a material pattern. Patterns frighten me when it comes to furniture, because then you are stuck with it. I would rather add colorful pillows to the chair and paint the walls. Thought on this chair and nursery ideas? Is the crib a horrible option with this chair? Thank you so much!
