Kiddo Chairs Turned Photo Props

My friend Tara from TLG Photography was in need of some mini chairs to use in her photoshoots. Lucky for her, I had quite a few just waiting to be painted.

She chose for one to be shabby white distressed, and the other to be the complete opposite... hot pink and glossy!

My apologies in advance for these old pictures of snow on this 80 degree Cleveland Spring day.







Tara has already used BOTH chairs in two recent shoots, including this one for her 18-month old daughter.


Turns out there wasn't a whole lot of chair-sittin' goin' on for this little lady! Check out some of the other adorable photos from this shoot over at TLG blog.

If you're in the Akron, Ohio area, and interested in affordable family, child, or newborn photos, schedule a session with Tara today by emailing her at tlgordonphotography@gmail.com. She'll make your family photo dreams come true :)

  1. Cute! Do you spray paint or use regular paint?

    1. Hi Dina. For the pink one I used about a million coats of spray paint and for the white one I used a homemade mixture of chalk paint.

    2. I see! I usually use spray paint for my smaller projects like chairs, shelves, etc... and have been pretty happy with the results. However, I'm thinking about painting my desk...any recommendations?

    3. Hi Dina - If you're going for a distressed look I def. recommend chalk paint and wax. If you're going for a sleeker look, check out this post by Honey Sweet Home: http://honeysweethome.blogspot.com/2013/02/winter-white-desk-makeover.html

      She shares all her primer, paint and sealers. Hope that helps!!

  5. Katie, do you have any more chairs? I have been looking for awhile for some older / vintage like childrens chairs to go with an art table.
