The Perfect Christmas Gift - Holiday Portraits

Posted by Abi Tuck on

We may be a little TOO excited for the holiday season this year! (But then again, is there such a thing as being too excited?)  We have already started bringing in tons of products for you guys to help make your holiday as beautiful and special as possible!  


One of the most exciting products that we brought in recently are the custom, hand-painted silhouette portraits from Mr. Boddington's Studio!  These silhouettes can be completely customized to your liking, and only take two weeks to be ready for you to take home! 

We know that, sometimes, ordering customizable gifts can be a challenging process.  However, with Mr. Boddington's Studio, and the staff here at Chestnut Lane, ordering is easy, pain free, and most importantly, QUICK! These hand-painted portraits are ready in only approximately 2 weeks after ordering!

If you're interested, here is all you need to do: 

Step 1:  Take a side view photo of the individual you want to have a portrait of.  Make sure the photo is not taken from a high or low angle, it must be perfectly perpendicular to the face!  You also want to be sure that the subject's mouth is closed.  Once you have the photo, simply save it as a jpeg and email it to our store at  (Make sure your name and contact information is included in the email so we can be sure to get your photo and order form organized!) 

Step 2:  Stop by Chestnut Lane and ask one of our awesome associates for an order form!  We will help you fill it out right here in store!  You'll have the opportunity to fully customize the painting however you like, including the paint color and the font used in the description!  Pictures of those options are below!  


Step 3:  Have patience!  Once you have filled out your order form, our associates will take care of the rest!  We submit your order form and photograph, and in approximately 2 weeks it'll be all ready for you to hang in your home!  


Also, keep in mind that these portraits can also be done for your fur-babies as well! We are all a little obsessed with all of these doggie portraits we've seen! 


Important side notes: 

  • The price for these completely customizable hand-painted portraits is only $60
  • Each silhouette is painted by hand in gouache on 8” x 10” archival cream card stock
  • The deadline for portraits to be in before Christmas is Dec. 5th, to allow the artists time to account for the large amount of orders coming in at that time! 
  • Mr. Boddington's Studio wants to make sure that customers are aware that, as these are completely hand-painted, colors and fonts may vary slightly! 


We are so, so excited to get started selling these awesome portraits!  If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us by phone (434-799-8500), email (, or any of our social media platforms!  You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest!  Get your orders in early so you'll have them ready by the holidays! 


Happy shopping!
