I mentioned that my mom and I refinished a high chair earlier this summer that she found at Goodwill. Goodwill is having a contest for "Amazing Finds" where you can win a 4-pack of tickets to state fair AND a parking pass. I'm hoping this project wins b/c Nate-O & I love state fair.
Here are the before pics:
You can see it was totally beat up. My mom scraped the old stain off using wood stripper and then we took it to Tom at True Value in FDL along with our table leaf to get a stain that would match. I stained it in her driveway and then Nate-O put a few coats of polyurethane on it. There are a few finishing touches that need to occur. The old straps were totally nasty so I picked up some new ones at Jo-Ann Fabrics. I also have found a bunch of tutorials to make a cute pad out of laminated cotton or oilcloth for it. Since Baby Schlotty won't actually be using this for a few months, I have some time to get this done (famous last words!). Here is the after:
Fingers crossed that we win the contest!
