This first picture is almost 35 yrs. old. Our first daughter was celebrating her first birthday in the highchair that was given to me at a baby shower given in her honor. The plastic cover came with the chair. Three years later our second daughter sat in the same chair with a different cover that we bought. Since then two grand daughters have used it and one grandson.
This was the chair with a different vinyl cover that our grandson used. (It's very hard to find a cover for the old wooden chairs that have winged sides). When our fourth grandchild was born, Hubby and I started looking at the worn tray and decided to redo the chair and cover.
Out came the sewing machine . I was going to do the sewing and Hubby was going to do the sanding and painting. I started measuring and doing the seat cushion .
In this pic was cutting the sides of the back and the batting to give it some padding .
Meanwhile, Hubby was doing his part.... sanding the chair.
We decided to paint it with exterior satin black paint. ( Our dining room has a lot of black accents and that is where it usually sits.)
The transformation is starting to take place. We were so pleased with how it turned out and how inexpensive the project was. I got the material as a remnant that cost & 4 a yd. It didn't take much more than that.
What have you been up to lately? I would love to see some of your projects.
