I call it a peacock chair because it sounds exotic and I love peacocks! But there isn’t any blue on this large rattan chair. Instead, the name refers to the large fan-shaped chair back. My mom use to have one in our Orlando living room during my formidable years and I recall thinking it was pretty cool. But I didn’t really like our living room overall– it was straight out of the 1970s with browns and oranges. My parents didn’t change out that hideous furniture, drapes etc. until 2003! Well, just recently I discovered an inspirational photo of a black peacock chair and said to myself “I want it!!” Sadly, my mom’s peacock chair found a new owner during one of her many garages sales so I scoured eBay and Craigslist. The ones on eBay were well over $100 dollars but I did find one on Craigslist for $35. Next, I picked 4 cans of Krylon gloss black spray paint at Walmart for $2.50 each. Within a week, my peacock chair was updated! It’s going in my soon-to-be black and white color scheme ‘library.’ Just need the Ikea Billy bookcase system now so I can move my book collection in!
