Peacock Chairs... And Some Help!

Readers: today I need your advice!

I'm working on a re-do of my daughter's bedroom. And I've fixated upon the idea of a peacock chair for the "reading corner". There are two available at a local store pawn shop. They've been there since late spring and I finally stopped yesterday to ask about price. The bigger one, which is white, is $60 and the smaller natural one is $40. 

Peacock chairs were HUGE in the 80s when I was a little girl. I'm pretty sure -- chair obsessed as I am -- that I wanted one. My idea is that it would fill the corner of her room and we could also add a small round table in front of it, at some point, as a desk/writing table. 

What do you think? Yay or nay on the peacock chair? Bigger or smaller? Paint it or leave it alone? Please weigh in! Oh, and I clearly have not watched enough episodes of Pawn Stars. Can I negotiate the price with them? How much would you pay? They appear to be in decent condition. Thanks!!! You are the BEST!


  1. depending on how small, I would say get the smaller - it would fit better in her room. And paint! & look for a table ( and maybe someone could get it for her b'day if you found it

  2. Get the smaller one -- will be betterfor her little frame and wont overwhelm, right? And def pain it -- want to see pictures!!!

  3. i say yes! definitely a strong feeling of inspiration in your words and the possibilities for colors are endless. do what makes your heart sing.


Thanks so much for commenting! I love to read what you have to say. ~Carrie
