BABY HIGH CHAIR RE-DO
I found my son's and mine, old high chair in the basement, that we had moved a few years back from my mom's basement. She lived in a flood plain, so the bottoms of the legs had a bit of rot going on.This made it unlevel. I could have cut 4 inches off the bottom, but then it wouldn't sit right at my dining table.So here's how I resolved it the frugal (cheap)way. Or as I refer to as the "Homefaker" way!
First and foremost was cleaning it up...
2nd was a Nice coat of Cabot...no I didn't strip or even sand it first...I always use this stain and have never had a problem yet.If you use anything else, the results may be all different.
The back is actually an old picture frame, glass removed and screwed to the back with wood screws. I decoupaged a piece of fabric in the middle where the picture would go.
The bottoms of the legs were water damaged/rotted,so I found a couple wood corner guards, cut them in half, painted them black, and attached them to all four legs with wood screws.I think it adds a touch of charm.
I absolutely love it...
I had to use my Pom for a baby...Do ya think a girl could get a grandbaby up in here !!!
