I ran across a post at A Penny Savedabout a green velvet sofa she is going to use in her nursery. As I was reading I was in disbelief because I thought I was the only one who would ever want green velvet furniture. When I was pregnant with Mason I knew I would need a rocking chair for the nursery. Being the frugal one that I am, I remembered my never-get-rid-of-anything dad had a rocking chair that belonged to my grandmother in his attic. My whole family, husband included, couldn't believe I actually wanted "Mimmie's green rocker". But I had a vision. Ok, not really, I just needed a rocker. I got the chair and placed it in what was our office/catch all room before we converted it into the nursery. Every time J went in there he made some not so nice comment about the chair. I have to admit there were a few times I went in that room and wondered what was I thinking myself, but I had already proclaimed it's greatness so there was no turnin' back. I really didn't have a plan to start with, so when I went shopping for crib bedding I looked for something to match that green rocker. I found some bedding at TJ Maxx and I believe it was $70 for the set and I was in business! The set included a quilt, bumper, skirt, sheet and 1 valance. Since the room has 2 windows I took the valance that was in the crib set and turned it into 3 pillows.
Now with the pillow and a throw on the rocker it fits right in. I know deep down J is glad I got this thing, especially while he is rocking in a comfy chair in the middle of the night!
