My grand daughter, who is four years old and such a chatter box, informed me that all she wants for Christmas is a baby doll, and all doll stuff in the most dramatic way possible. I asked my duaghter what she got her and she said everything but the doll and the stroller. Cool.
In the meantime, on my last thrifting trip to TROSA I happened upon this cute little high chair that was in sad shape…but the price was right.
It was my intention to one day fix it and keep it in the house for when any little girl comes over but when I mentioned it to my daughter she said she forgot to get a high chair. Two days before Christmas she tells me this. Here I am sick as a dog but Grandmothers love kicked in and I went to work.
I used wood glue to glue in all the pieces in their respective holes and reinforced the ones that were not loose. I also glued and clamped the seat together.
I let the glue dry under a fan on high for about 5 hours then I lightly sanded it. I used Valspar “Coral Sand” to paint it. I chose this color because it is feminine but not over the top. I like it a lot. I painted three coats on it. I really should have primed it first because this wood was so thirsty but I did not have time for all that.
I did not have time to decorate it or fix that glue drip I did not notice until I took the photo because Khalia came over Christmas eve and I had to hide it.
She loved it!!
paint………………………….2.99 (only used about 50 cent worth)
God I love thrifting.
