Spiecal Gift For My GrandKid’s

Today I wanted to share a great birthday gift idea my husband and I had for our Grandkid’s Caleb and Bailey. I love to paint and love to give painted gifts and with being a Grandparent I have become very nostalgic and love to give my children and grandchild gifts that will become heirlooms to always remember us by. For Caleb’s 2nd birthday and Bailey’s 1st birthday the big decision had to be made, what would be a great gift for my little darlings.

I knew the gift would have to be painted, because that’s what I love to do and it had to be wooden because that’s what Pop Pop does (Caleb and Bailey call there Grandpa Pop Pop), my husband is a cabinet maker. I decided that I wanted to paint each of them a wooden chair that they would be able to use everyday, for reading, sitting and coloring or watching TV. I had a pattern for a wooden chair that I paint already but it is converted to hold a flower pot. I spoke to my husband to see what he thought and being a cabinet maker he immediately said the back was to straight and would not be a comfortable, so we went to the choice of Adirondack chairs for them, they would not only be comfortable, but the kids would grow into them and use them for several years. So my husband went to work on constructing the chairs for the kids and then I painted them. Baileys of course had to be girly girl so I went with a butterfly theme and Caleb loves the outdoors so why not a fishing theme.

Well the chairs were a big hit with the kids and they still love to this day, even though sometimes they are used as time out chairs.
