The chair that everyone thought was "gross" quickly became a "dibs" chair that we fought over because of it's comfy, swivel, rocking ability.
I am not sure if my inability to purchase new pieces for my living room is because I love vintage pieces or because I am scared to death that whatever I buy, I will get sick of and not like 2 years from now. It's easier to swap out a $40 chair or $200 sofa.
Whenever I come home with a new piece my husband is like "PLEASE, just go buy some nice NEW pieces". Sorry honey, I can't just yet:)
While sitting in my ugly, yet comfy swivel, looking lovingly over at my new pink chair thinking to myself, 'if only you rocked and swiveled, I would love you even more'. Then an awesome idea came to mind, which usually happens when I have had a glass or two of wine... why not take the rocker swivel component off this chair and attach to the other. So, I flipped over both chairs and realized, it could probably be done!
She did NOT want to come apart!
Fortunately, I didn't even need to cut the boards. They fit PERFECTLY on this chair.
I now have a rocker swivel!! I may have to remove the legs but they seem to not be in the way. I will test it out for a few days before I remove them.
I promise these photos make the chair look waaay more ELECTRIC pink! I swear it's not as crazy bright as the pictures look…but close:)
