Vintage Highchair / Booster Seat

I realised last week that I’d finished this high chair some time ago but had never taken any photos…. so today is the day to share ๐Ÿ™‚

Vintage Highchair

I picked this one up at The Smith Family Op Shop and while it was covered in a thick layer of lacquer it was in perfect condition. The turned legs and back just give it such a great shape I had to take it home… despite the fact that neither of my kids would use it! I’m hoping to find it a new home with a little person ready to sit up at the table for dinner ๐Ÿ˜‰

I thought the aqua colour (Provence by Annie Sloan) would be perfect as it works for boys or girls. It’s such a bright and cheerful colour, I’m in the process of using it on my front door! I’ve given it a light distress and finished it with clear wax.

I’ve been a little quiet on the project front lately; I’ve had challenges and changes in my life that have had me unsteady this year. I keep saying I will get back on track soon, but I’m realising that a better way of looking at it is to accept that things may just be like this for a little while. Hope you’ll bear with me ๐Ÿ™‚

  • The high chair is so cute Catherine! Did you lighten the Provence because it doesn’t look like Provence on my screen lol…it’s not one of my favourite shades out of the can but I love the light aqua colour I see on your chair

      Thanks Karen – It is Provence, it’s probably just my photos! My house is quite dark so I have trouble lightening them enough so they are clear without distorting the colour!

    Oh this is gorgeous!! I missed this somehow!!
    We have an antique junior chair that both girls have used, Violet’s still using it and I’ll be sad when she’s too big for it.
    It’s been so handy.
    Great work!!
