Vintage Thingie Thursday...

This was my high chair ...
It was painted blue when we got it from mom and dad about 17 years ago.
It was to late for our children to use...but all our grandchildren used it.
We had it stripped down and hubby re finished it.

 The 'table' had to be replaced...hubby did a great job...it looks original...

  2. Wow, the restoration job is fantastic! That's amazing this was your high chair, it's been in your family for quite some time and that makes it that much more special. I love old things... well most old things! ;-) Have a wonderful day!

    1. Interesting how we grew up in a world of painted things, and now it's "natural wood." PS: not sure what the problem is, but Blogger would not let me post as a "comment"--only as a "reply."

  12. Beautiful high chair. I have my mother's from the '20s, but it isn't nearly as elegant as yours. Thanks for sharing.

  13. What a wonderful high chair. So what prompted the light blue paint job - did you have a blue high chair in your youth or did your mom get the urge to change things up a bit and she painted it?
