Hello there friends!!
I still live :)
I figured I should drop in with a few updates and let you know that baby M is growing fabulously and lots of projects are underway to make room for her!
Wanna see a quick bump update?
I'm right at 24 weeks now and we are getting a little crazy excited about getting to hold our sweet baby girl in just a few short months.
We've been hard at work in the nursery and it's finally starting to look like a baby's room.
I can't wait to share some updates with you about it soon.
But for now, I'm sharing a fun makeover I did with the wooden highchair I found a couple months ago.
I posted about a bunch of our baby finds a few weeks ago and this was one of my first baby paint projects I tackled.
Here's the before picture of the highchair we were able to score:
This was one of those pieces I knew we were going to get as soon as we found out baby existed.
I just love wooden highchairs.
Apparently everyone else does too...because it took a little while to find.
Hubby scored this one at a random flea market wayy back in the corner and talked the owner down to 30$.
It was in great condition besides needing new straps.
So I sanded it down and gave it a couple glossy coats of my favorite Rustoleum enamel white.
Check her out after a few beautiful coats of paint:
After it dried I sanded it down for some distressing.
Mostly because I love the look and major plus because it'll get tons of use so no worries about it showing a little wear :)
I love that the tray is in perfect condition and easily comes on and off.
It got a good distressing too and a couple coats of finishing wax to make it safer to eat off of.
For an added little bit of personality, I added her sweet name to the back of the chair with pink vinyl.
I love the pop of color it gives it plus I just an excuse to see her name :)
I decided to go with classic white rather than a fun blue or pink because it'll be sitting in our dining room with our other blue chairs.
I wanted it to go with the furniture in there more than I wanted a pink chair :)
Plus I can jazz it up all cute with whatever colors I want for birthday pictures!!
Want some before & after magic??
I'm in love with our new little highchair and can't wait for sweet baby feet & giggles to put in it!!!
PS.... I am planning on buying a new buckle for the chair- they are super cheap on Amazon and an easy replacement to make for old chairs in case you find one too :)
