Custom Painted Highchair....

I had a previous customer of ours
contact me and want me to paint
her highchair that was hers
as a child.  She wanted her baby
to use it but needed it refinished.
She wanted it all white, but then I 
asked her how about the tray
refinished in a stain,
then distress the white edges.
She loved that idea, so here 
it was before....


we sanded it down....
took it apart...
taped up the straps...


took the tray apart...


completely apart and sanded it down...


then I stained it...

distressed the edges....

picked....

some better ones...
