Then I realised the arms don't fit under our dining room table, and there was no tray or harness...so in fact it was out. I happily discarded the chair and went out and bought a beautiful svan which made me happy.
Fast forward to kid number 2 and her taking over the svan...the eldest was not charmed, and our benches are too low for him too. I started investigating solutions when the old half sanded chair caught my eye and I was suddenly inspired. I was convinced I could make it pretty, not to mention our budget is very tight and couldn't stretch to a matching svan.
I already had some leftover paint, so for the price of a bit of ski rope and some glaze we got a new chair and my son is very pleased with it. In fact he's taken to watching the tv in it too LOL. Now without further ado, here's the chair makeover :)
I never got a pic a few years back but believe me when I say the situation was dire!
Here's me just starting with the first coat of paint.
Many hours of sanding & 2 coats of gloss later (and hours of wondering what had possessed me to do this in the first place LOL)
I'm happy, my child is happy...happy endings all around, which is just the way we like it :)
