My mom made me do it……

We were perusing yard sales last friday…
when we came across this chair at our neighbors house.
I almost passed right by it…
orange and green stripes are just not in my color palate.
Then Out of the blue……
Fin said to me…
mom…you could use that chair for your photo shoots.

Photo shoot take TWO:

  12. fabulous finds says:

  13. Preppy Mama says:

    Love it!

  14. What a handsome little guy you have there….so funny, too. So…..did you get it? You know you could always recover it. Reupholstered furniture with old character is the best.


  15. Paint it and have it reupolstered. It got gorgeous bones 🙂

  16. Hi friend! I am here, and commenting!!

    What a cooperative boy you have, take it while you can, time is ticking….soon he will run when he sees the camera!

    Have a fabulous day girlie!

  17. vicki archer says:

    Finn is the most adorable little boy…..lucky you, xv.

  18. Hi there!
    Finn is adorable! (Super cute, but don't tell him, just say "handsome"!) Also,I think that chair would look awesome upholstered in a rough linen…Hope you have a great day! Stop by for a visit sometime.

  19. How adorable! He looks very happy to help out with the photo shoots.

    Love the chair – not so much the colors- but the chair is awsome!

  20. He is so cute!!! Your mini-me to a tee!

  21. Tattered Goods says:

    Well, well, well, is he not the smartest thing ever? and lets not forget that he is way to cute for his own good 🙂 Enjoy your day

  22. What a good eye. You should hire him out for some consulting work!

  23. Love that he thought you could use it for your photo shoots…love that!!! So cute pictures…

    It looks like the coloring and everything of my grandmother's chair I am getting redone as we speak…bc orange isn't my palette either:)

  24. thefinaltouchideas says:

    To Cute!!

  25. RACHELLE says:

    love shell

  26. Too cute! He knows just the right thing to say, doesn't he?!

  27. Smart boy! Love it!

  30. BabinBlogger says:

  31. That's one little smart cookie you have there. He's a cute one too!
    Be a sweetie,

  32. Such a cutie!

  33. Lemonade Makin' Mama says:

    Oh how sweet! I love the furniture outside look. Just sweet. Wait, I already said that. Suh-weet! (that better?)

  34. Anonymous says:

    Fin has an eye for a beautiful chair. Oh and he is a good model too..
    Fun pics.. I need to take Fin with me yard sale in…..

  35. Chez Zizi says:

    I see he has a good eye like his mama.


    P.S. He is so darn cute!

  36. Kathy's Red Door Welcome says:

    Let me get my hands on that chair…I'm thinking paint the wood antique white and slipcover it in burlap. What da ya think? Of course, when you have a boy as cute as Fin to pose by it… you don't really need anything more!

  37. Brilliant!!! Great pics.

  38. Sylvia (at) Lily's Pad and Petals says:

    So cute and smart too!!!!

  39. Julie Harward says:

    An awesome chair! And an even more awesome young boy…so cute! Come say hi 😀

  40. Isn't it great when your child helps you find treasures for a photo shoot?! I guess, once in awhile, they do listen to us;) What a cutie Fin is!

  41. I have a little blonde haired blued eyed niece that would be a perfect match for that little Fin. So stinkin' cute!

    And the chair…I think you need to become crafty and try your hand at upholstery. How hard could it be, right??

    See you this weekend I'm sure…


  42. Laura PARING DOWN says:

    I can't wait to see what becomes of that chair. Haha!

  43. Florence says:

    Isn't great when I children see through our eyes a good thing. Florence

  44. Now this child knows his Momma! Rip that upholstery off, paint that wood, tack on some canvas dropcloth and VOILA!

  45. Love the pics…He is just too cute!!!
    I cannot wait to see what you do with that chair!!! 🙂

  46. fiberdoodles says:

    Cute, cute!

  47. Wendy @ The Shabby Nest says:

    That's so cute! My kids do that sort of thing too. I guess we're training them well. 😉 You still coming through my neck of the woods in July?

  48. gretchen says:

    oh, flashbacks! I had chairs in that 'lovely' fabric, back in the 70's or was it the 80's? …not with all that great wood or I'd still have them and without the stipes!

    your son is just too cute!

  49. Lovely chair!

    I am guessing the last shot is where you paid him to smile 🙂

  50. loving your little guy but LOVING the chair!! I would have snatched it up in a second! : )

  51. paperbird says:

    He is too cute- I would set him up with my Lu Lu but then she'd be the older woman- nobody likes to be the older woman.

  52. so cute when they have their own ideas like that! I'm sure with a tad of your love (and maybe the help of your seamstress friend) it'll be Lola Bs beautiful!
