Becca is a friend of mine and a FANtastic photographer. I love seeing the photos she’s taken – whether it be of happy couples, brides, weddings, babies or families.
With summer finally upon us, Becca’s shoots are moving outdoors. And for good reason! Hello . . . have you seen the weather lately? But this means she has to create her own set and a few props will help out tremendously.
When she mentioned that she was looking for charming chair to use as a prop, I vowed to keep an eye out. Naturally, she was looking for one that was full of spunk but that wouldn’t break the bank. I stumbled upon this beauty at the thrift store. The price tag? A whopping $5.
Isn’t Jack a fantastic model? I just couldn’t resist.
The work was easy. I tightened some bolts when I was sanding it down. Then I put on two coats of Behr primer+paint in one. I finished it up with a clear coat of polyurethane.
Isn’t it pretty? Totally fitting for its big debut on the big screen. Ok, ok, small screen. Ok, photo paper. Whatever.
Well this chair is definitely spotlight-worthy – but it’s nothing compared to the pictures it has debuted in! Check back for Part II to see Becca’s work and how she’s incorporated this cheap prop!
The total cost of this project?
Chair . . . $5
Paint . . . $6 (about half a can that was $12ish)
Total . . . $12
