The first time I laid eyes on a Peacock chair was on the 60’s cult classic show “The Addams Family.” I thought Morticia Adams was the coolest as she sat perched on her throne acting like the queen of the castle that she was.
The Peacock Chair is back and it’s everywhere! Retailers Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters have both come out with their own versions of the chair.

All over Pinterest there is so much inspiration if you are looking to incorporate the Peacock Chair into your home. Take a look at my favorites:
How fabulous are they?
All of the peacock chair love that I was feeling gave me the inspiration to give Craig’s List a quick look and low and behold I saw this..
At first I was scared to look at the price because in the past I have seen them in the $250-$500 range, Ready for it? $25! Sometimes you encounter those people on Craig’s List that are clueless about that little treasure they are trying to sell. It was listed as a “wicker chair” that would be perfect for bridal and baby showers. I’m pretty sure that if I referred to it as being a ‘Peacock Chair” they would have thought I was the crazy one. Needless to say I was out the door within the hour to pick it up.
I’m not sure what I am going to do with it yet. I know I want to change out the fabric on the seat cushion but am still undecided if I should paint it or leave it as is. I do know that it will stay somewhere in our bedroom and look forward to sharing it’s makeover with you guys soon.
