The Glider: The Good, The Bad and The Not Ugly

May 22, 2014 at 5:10 AM 1 comment

Well folks,the Walmart glider arrived and I’m very pleased with it.



Here are my thoughts in a nutshell.

The Good –

I’m really very impressed with the fabric and the navy welt makes it feel very custom.  It is a true white and navy which I love.  It’s a nice heavy cotton fabric and it doesn’t look cheap.

I think it’s really comfortable.  The back is plenty cushy and I really like the swivel on it.  I could spend hours here (which is good since I wont have a choice in a few months).

The back pillow height is a little low.  I can’t rest my head against the back of it but that’s nothing that a throw pillow can’t solve.

The arms feel a little low for the height of holding a baby but that’s nothing that a “my breast friend” can’t solve.

Overall, I’d say it feels on par with a Pottery Barn glider and I bet you’ll fool plenty of people into thinking it is a much higher quality.  It feels as thought it’ll last and you can’t beat the price.

The Not Ugly –

Gotta admit that I squealed with delight when I opened the box.  It was way prettier then what I was expecting.  If you own a beach house, (lucky you), I think this would be super cute there as well.
