A silver rocker?

Sorry for the absence, I'm taking a graduate course that is kicking my butt! I did find time to sneak in an hour of "me time" on Saturday and visited an amazing vintage store in Greenville. I found a rocker that's very similar to the one Lee Kleinhelter used in her nursery. I'm debating whether to get it or not..it's LESS than $100!


Speaking of Lee...let's look at some of her amazing rooms.



Which plate do you use?!






I have to say this one is my favorite by far... something about that blue and orange mixed with natural jute, just love it!


Here's my question for you moms out there, and dads! (I'm not pregnant) But I am trying to shop ahead for the nursery so I won't have to buy it all at once. Do you really need a cozy, upholstered rocker, or would the silver, sleek, really awesome rocker like Lee's do the trick?

That silver rocker is gorgeous in that room!!

Yes, you want the most comfortable rocker/glider you can find! The last thing you want to sit in at 4:00 a.m. is a cold, hard, rocker. But most importantly, if you have a difficult recovery you'll want a soft place to sit. :-)

I love Lee and ALL she does.

On the rocker note...I bought an expensive upholstered rocker, but didn't use it that much. It really depends on the child, whether they need to be rocked or not. I LOVE the rocker, GO GET IT!

I think I found something in each room that I need! As for that rocker - you should just have it in your home for a gorgeous factor!

I didn't use a rocker or glider. I usually fed my kids, even in the middle of the night in front of the boob tube. I would buy a silver rocker like that because it is TO DIE FOR!! And I would put it smack dab in front of everyone to enjoy!

Get it. Only 2% of rockers in the world look good.

I love Lee and love her restraint!! She chooses one or two colors and sticks w/it!! In terms of what you get for a nursery chair it's all about comfort. I found that I needed a lot of back support to keep me more upright.

As a mother of four, the rocker any rocker can be comfy with a pillow under the arm. I just liked the motion. Test it out with a baby doll.

i think you will want comfort above all. i had a terrible nurser, and needed a soft place to "sleep" while we worked through the rough hours.
