Farmhouse Nursery // The Hanging Out Hanging Up Hanging Around Hanging Chair
THE FARMHOUSE After three years of pining and two months of debating, I'm happy to announce that the Serena and Lily hanging rattan chair is officially mine. And it's every bit as good as I thought it would be!
Because I think pairing rap music and renovations is cheeky, I put together a little hanging-up-the-hanging-chair GIF for y'all. It's over on Instagram if you want to check it out! And please, lay it on me. Am I as funny as I think I am?
Anyway, as I mentioned last week, I'm still putting this room together. You may notice that there's a Rejuvenation sconce over the bed now (more on that soon), the curtains are hung (although I'm still debating whether to hem these inexpensive Ikea drapes or swap them out for something a bit nicer), and more than a few throw pillows adorn the "day-bed". One thing that hasn't changed, however, is the paint-speckled floors. Those look the exact same as the day we uncovered them. And for the record, the floors are killing me in these photos. They look more dirty than 'art-studio' and the floors make the whole room feel unfinished (well it is unfinished, but even more unfinished). Strangely, the floors don't really bother me in person, but after seeing these photos, I'm thinking we need to move refinishing the hardwood floors up on our 'to-do' list.
Now for a look at installing that amazing chair. And as an aside, Garrett is a dutiful husband! Just a quick finger point and he gets 'er done for me ;)
Isn't it lovely?!
Not five minutes after the chair was hung, a delighted Wilder spotted the new addition and declared it his. I guess that was to be expected. The whole, "this is a hanging chair, not a swing" conversation went right over his head, which, I suppose, was also to be expected. But now, how do I handle it? All I've come up with is planting mouse traps under the cushions.
p.s. later this week I start the One Room Challenge for the first time! And I picked a room that I'm pretty excited about. You can read more here!
p.p.p.s. "Yay, it's Wednesday cake!". Yes, it's a thing, and I am thinking that it's the best idea ever!
