Before & After: "Old & Ugly" High Chair

Would you click on this Craigslist ad: "very old & ugly high chair w/potty chair both for $15"? Yeah, me neither. But Jennifer did (and with enthusiasm I might add) and she set to work cleaning it up and giving it new look.

The silver paint makes a huge difference and the vinyl cover will surely be easier to clean than the previous fabric. Jennifer shares the steps she took:

I had been looking everywhere for a high chair and when I found it I jumped on it. I quickly grabbed sand paper, primer and some Valspar metal spray paint. I also found some really great fabric and vinyl at Joann's Fabric which gave it a "pop". I kept all the original hardware and it was easier than I was expecting. I loved the old vintage feel of it and it is a vintage Cosco which makes it even sweeter!

Thanks Jennifer! Readers, visit Jennifer at Little Miss Alizzi.
