Stylish Toddler Chair

 I have to admit that I get a little tired of all the "plastic" kids' stuff....
We put the high chair in the basement awhile back and have just been using one of those plastic travel high chairs strapped to one of our kitchen chairs.... I was excited to find this little toddler chair at the flea market this past weekend...
 The best part about this little cutie is that it is VERY similar in style to our kitchen chairs....
so well worth $10
 The kiddos were both with Grandma today so it was the perfect day to knock out this project...
 I wanted it to be something fun, but still go along with our furniture.  So I used the "oxygen white" color we just used in the living room--
 Hand painted this cute little retro pattern in black acrylic paint on the seat...
The idea actually came from some fabric I saw and pinned on pinterest...
 Used the "gekko" color (which is the color on our chairs) for the back and the footrest...
 This will not only get rid of the pink, plastic travel high chair---but also give us back another adult seat....
 Sooooo much better!!!!
 And I think we may even steal the safety straps from another chair and screw them into this one so she'll be latched in....
 Fun fun fun to do things for my sweet babies!!!  She already loves it and has been climbing in and out of it....
Check out some of the many faces of Mighty...
 I'm so thankful for our quirky little girl...she makes us laugh all the time and has quite the personality...
This face is usually reserved for Doodlebug--
 but if you say "Show me your eyebrows!" 
she makes this face....then she looks around for her brother...they're a mess just like their parents!!!!

    1. Sara we're hoping so!!!! We really enjoyed seeing everyone last year and now we have new family members!!! We've shown our place twice and are really praying for the LORD to sell it and get us moved. Kinda stressful right now...praying for a safe pregnancy and healthy baby and momma in September for you!

  3. That is adorable! And so nice that it matches your others chairs! I don't like how our little highchair looks, but I did make sure to buy one that matched the colors of our house :)
