I amm the buy-a-project-piece-and-never-finish queen.
Maybe I should make a crown off a Pinterest pin…oh wait. I wouldn’t finish it. 😉
But today, I COMPLETED **TWO** projects!! This is HUGE!
I bought this old Jenny Lind high chair for $12 at the CCC sale last year (wonderful sale of children’s gently used items), and knew I wanted to use it for a birthday shoot.
The baby bed was an old doll bed I picked up at a church garage sale for $3. I was so excited when I found it-cause I’ve been looking for a baby bed for months now! I have to repair the bottom board and make a little mattress for it, but I’m totally fine with that.
Problem was-I havn’t had anyone book a birthday session for a baby all year! So I had to wait until my on son, Kidron, is about to turn one…and therefore I needed to get the high chair ready for his pictures.
I LOVE turqouise. Really anything turqouise or orange…I’m apt to buy it. Or drool over it for months. S0-I remembered I had a sample of Vaspar paint in a dark turquoise, and decided to use it for my project.
The pictures speak for themselves-but in case you want the details:
I used a craft foam brush to paint with. (It’s what I had) I tried using a paper towel to brush on a little paint on the baby bed kinda as a primer, which made the paint go on smoother. I did two coats on both the high chair and the bed. I wanted the vintage look, so I wasn’t concerned about getting in every little nook and cranny.
I love how they turned out-and now I need a little squishy baby, and a birthday toddler to photograph! 🙂
So if you know of any mamas in the Tyler area that want a session with these fun props-send them my way!!
Kidron did so good for mama while I painted! It took me about an hour and half to finish both projects.
