High Chair with a Coat of Paint

A month or so ago I dug out the high chair from the attic.  I know it will be a few months before grandson will be ready to sit in it but I was a Girl Scout and want to be prepared!

It is golden oak that was the fad back 20+ years ago and I am over golden oak.

Here is the before, nothing wrong with the wood color, just ready for a bit of an update.

I decided aqua paint, good for boy or girl, right?  A few coats and the high chair looks newer and brighter







I am still trying to convince hubby the golden oak dining table needs some updating.  I just want to paint the base but he isn't convinced yet.  I will keep trying (or he might come home to a painted base and see how long before he noticed)!

  1. That's the nice thing about wood - it's worth keeping. My daughter's high chair was plastic 17 years ago. At least her younger cousins got to use all of her baby 'equipment'. Love the new color! I say go for it, paint the base of your table. I think it would take a good while for my husband to notice if I did that here. I always tell him we've been together so long I know what he likes before he knows himself. ;-)

  2. It's amazing what a lick of paint can do! I love the chair painted. I hope your husband lets you paint the base of the table. My mom did it to some occassional tables back in the 80s and it still looks good.

  4. It looks great. We still have our high chair from when our kids where little. Never thought to paint it.

  6. Love the paint ! My hubby would NEVER, NEVER, EVER paint wood (we are definitely not on the same page here) - and if I did, he'd notice the second he came in the house LOL
