Q: I have a wooden high chair that is currently a light natural color with a clear finish. I am looking to paint it, but I'm wondering how to go about it. What type of paint would I use on a high chair tray? Is there a safe spray paint that I can use? Should I strip it first, or just find a good primer? Thanks!
