I should be purging and packing, but instead I find myself trying to escape all the stress and do a little thrifting! My plan is just to always “look”, which most of the time I do. But my last trip to Salvation Army I spotted this amazing Vintage Rattan Swivel Rocker and I pretty much knew it had to be mine….if the price was right of course!
I saw some on Chairish a while ago that I fell in love with, but sadly they were way out of my price range. Ever since then, I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled but they are so rare!
I love the 70s vibe and the potential it has. It needs to be refinished and reupholstered, although I don’t find the yellow all that horrible. I’ve even thought about detaching the bottom and converting it into a swing chair – how fun would that be?! Best part is, I only had to pay $30 for this beauty!
For now, I’m dreaming of where I should put it in our new home! I cannot wait to redecorate all that space. I feel so lucky that we get two living room spaces, which means so many possibilities! I even have a space for a studio, so I’m wondering if I should just put this lovely piece in there? We will see!
Have you found anything recently while thrifting that you just couldn’t resist? P.S. There’s still some fun happening for our Back To School Series! Head to Frock Files today for a fabulous DIY Typographical Mouse Pad and Pars Caeli for a totally fun Lunchbox Whiteboard for the kids!
