Awesome. totally awesome. I love it :) oh, and hello from London!


That is the cutest and most inspiring thing ever! And for such a great cause!


I love this Judy!

Great work. Very admirable. <3


such a great idea!!!

Love the chair, but love the charity aspect.


I love this! Especially what it was for!
So wonderful and inspiring!


I love it! What a wonderful project and cause!

This is awesome. Tell me more!


Wow! That looks amazing! Great project too! Good luck at the auction :D


Such a great idea!


great project!!!


This is absolutely brilliant! It suprisingly looks GREAT! I shall show this to my mama & say, " See! You should've just let me use my imagination when I 'painted' your sofa 20 yrs ago. It could've been a great artwork today"


That's amazing! I love how sweet and thoughtful you and Jane are. Thank you for an amazing post. The chair looks amazing and how adorable are the kids. Thank you for making my Wednesday.


What a sweet and wonderful project for such a fabulous cause. A fabulous way to give back!

Fabulous and for such a wonderful cause--quite the artists at Cooks!


oh how sweet & how terribly sad too. :(

I saw that sofa on another blog a while ago, but I never saved it, and was sorry. I thought it was a wonderful and clever to have a beautiful and kid friendly (which I don't have) house.


The chair looks fantastic! I love all the colors, and I'm glad it's going to charity!


This is truly awesome. It makes me smile - and cry!


This is pretty cool! And for a good cause too. Thinking about trying this out myself now!


That is a GREAT idea!

The kids really must have enjoyed it and the results are fabulous.


That is absolutely genius! Not only is the chair lovely but its going to such a wonderful cause!

You are a saint. The daughter, too. Please make sure not to scare the children with that big claw necklace. How much did that cost, by the way?

I wanted to elaborate on my earlier post, as it was short. I like what the foundation does. It seems great, and bringing in a creative outlet for the kids is always something I am in favor of, and something I could put my heart into.

I would love to see more things like that develop. We have St Jude here in Memphis, which is an amazing treatment and research facility, that treats children with cancer and other horrible diseases, done all through charity.

I hope the chair makes a ton of money.


How cool would it be to have a set of these around a dining room table?! And the sweet blessing they are is the best part. So brilliant!


This is such a wonderful idea and the chair is gorgeous! x


What can compare to how visually interesting children's artwork is? It is almost impossible to replicate once one becomes an adult, too. I have tried to incorporate childlike artwork into some of my projects and it usually seems to fall flat. The hand has been too trained, as has the eye. I never tire of seeing a child's shaky, wonky handwork. Their use of color is also always eyecatching and vibrant. Simple, beautiful, unmatchable.

You and Jane are unstoppable and it's a pleasure to flip through Vogue and be shocked to discover you two inside. Thanks for doing what you do uniquely and with style.


Awesome! What an art work. ;D

Fabulous! Great idea


Kudos to you and Jane! I hope I can do that too here in the Philippines...the charis is so stylish, and very functional, and will help a lot of kids...what more could one ask for!

~your fan from the Philippines :D

I saw a couch like this on A Bloomsbury Life (blog) and adored it. Love how you've added lacquer and are creating the chair for a wonderful cause.


What a great idea with a beautiful product! :)



The entire idea has a beautiful spirit. I love this, warms my day.


That is so kind of you. I wish I could do something for the little patients of our area. I´m extremely interested in entering med-school, so that dream might not be that far away.


that looks amazing. where can i find a chair similar to that?

mr. freddy's mom

this is a good project!
you and jane really have a good heart!
i'm more impressed on what you did!

those kids are so cute!
hmm...seeing the chair gives me an idea
and can't wait for mr. freddy to draw something on my
chair. lol!


Absolutely love love the idea! Now, I want to do something similar like that for my apt. Great posting Judy...and great great concept.




Awesome! Can't imagine those kids can do such designs like this. =D Beautiful! =D

I saw Jane's post on this, and thought it was such a BRILLIANT idea, on so many levels! :)

tracey ellle

what a lovely initiative.. and cause.. great stuff


Hi Judy, looks familiar from afar :D reminds me of the LV multicolor monogram with a touch of informality init. Something new. Indeed a briliant one. Very thoughtful of both of you.. Thanks for sharing this. Have yourself a nice day ahead.


This is absolutely beautiful, both in the artwork and in the thoughtfulness! I love your blog as it has so much substance rather than a regular old fashion blog. Thank you, and I will continue to look forward to your blog! :) I think your blog is one of my most favorites!


What an amazing idea - very cool to make something so unique and have it go to a good cause.

Lauren Estep

What an awesome project for an equally awesome cause :)


WOw, what an amazing thing....the perfect blend of you and your interests and doing something fabulous for others. Again, crazy inspiring. I love Jane and her blog is so wonderful, but I think YOUR blog is a true little jewel lady. Thanks for being an amazing, sassy mommy. I hope when my little guy (who is 5) is the age of your girls that we are just as close as you guys are. I would love to collaborate with him someday too.

That is super beautiful! I saved few pictures in my inspiration box.
