Painting for Charity - Princess Fairy Chair

When I began blogging in August, I mentioned that I am frequently asked to paint furniture, especially children's furniture for fundraisers.

Unfortunately, I have not been good at taking pictures of these items but I did find these few photos of a cute little "Princess Fairy" chair that I painted this past year for the Western Pennsylvania Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. 

I often find inspiration from children's books, blankets, pictures and even toys.  In this case, it was a book about a fairy princess.  The seat of the chair features the princess herself and it is surrounded by dainty flowers.


I then added a sweet multi colored fringe, polka dots and of course, more flowers.


The spindles were painted in coordinating colors and voila....


A perfect chair for a little fairy princess!

  13. This is so sweet and fun. I also do painted furniture. Most of it I sell but have also done some charitable work. I love reading where you get your inspiration because this piece is totally precious. I especially liked the addition of the ruffle. It just took it to the next level.
    Thanks so much for linking it up to Motivated Monday at BeColorful.
