Continuing with my posts about the nursery.
I probably should have started talking about the nursery from this post – chronologically, this was the first piece that sort of set the tone for everything else.
We got a glider from our friends for free. It was awesomely comfy, but rather old and ugly from being in use for 10 years.
So I got this idea to re-upholster it. On my own. While already sporting a 7-month pregnant belly.
Again, the biggest problem was finding a cute fabric. This was before I discovered fabric.com (about which I shared in my previous post), so I ended up buying two sets of receiving blankets and using them for the grand remake!
I am very happy with the results, even if I realized a bit too late that flannel isn’t exactly the perfect choice for upholstering (not durable).
And this glider – the greens of it, the frogs – is what set the whole room’s theme! With green furniture and animal curtains 🙂
