For Elle’s first birthday I was in the market for a vintage wooden children’s high chair. I couldn’t find one anywhere (you know… anywhere that had them for under $10 :))… and then last week I came across this.
Try not to choke. It was $2.66 at my favorite thrift store. I couldn’t get it in my car fast enough. Actually, I literally couldn’t as I was trying to hold squirmy Elle and finagle the chair into the passenger’s seat. A good Samaritan had to help me… and then I looked like the crazy woman trying to juggle this chair and my baby. In the rain.
But everything worked out fabulously because the squirmy little girl adores climbing up into this chair now.
I used a tester pot of Country Chic Paint’s Strawberry Ice-Cream. It’s really incredible how well that paint covers. The chair turned out adorably but, let’s face it, we need a little girl in it to really show it off. 🙂
Look at that profile! I could eat her up. I just love those cheeks.
You know how I got this photo?
I told Drew I’d give him a lollipop if he stood still and gave me a great smile.
But then he could barely stand still he was so excited for the pop.
The whole time I was snapping photos I was really hoping I still had that lollipop in my bag. 🙂
I bet you think he’s trying to hurt her in this next photo.
But he’s not… he gets really into kissing her. It’s so cute.
As I type this I’m sitting across from the highchair at our kitchen table now… I love it. Oh, and if you are wondering about the title of the post: we rarely call her Elle because Drew has called her Sissy since before she was born (you know, Sissy = Sister). 🙂
PS: I’ve decided to sell these two pieces for $150 each. If you are interested and live in the area shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
