Refinished Antique High Chair

Because of the long Holiday weekend I wasn't able to get much done.  I spent most of my time just being with my family!  We had our older boys the whole time, which is rare for us, so it was SO nice! 
 I did, however, finish a project for a friend.  She brought over her antique high chair that she wanted me to refinish for her.
She wanted it white, and of course distressed!
Here it is Before:
 It is a beautiful chair with nice details

 I used my homemade chalk paint, and went with Valspar's Betsy's Linen.  
 Then I distressed, and topped it with Polycrylic! 
It was the perfect little project to do over the weekend!  I hope you all had a fabulous
 holiday weekend too!

  2. That is identical to the high chair I had for my kids back in the late 70's. I painted it white in 1982 when we moved to FL and sold it for more than I paid for it new! Great minds think alike as they say. Love YOURS, Therena! xo Diana

  9. Beautiful! I love wood high chairs. They add character to a kitchen and look seriously more pleasing to the eye than the plastic ones. Painting this one was a great idea!
