Linky Love and the finished high chair

I contribute to a little blog called 'Save the Date for Us'. It's a place for a few friends to record our dates with our husbands. The goal is to go on one date, every week, for a year. I absolutely LOVE being a part of this project and I'm so thankful to have been invited! Although I'm behind the other girls (because I started a couple months in), the Mr. and I have gone on so many fun dates! Before joining in, date nights were a thing of the past for us. It just wasn't a priority. Now, we make time for it and we have a lot of fun thinking of what we're going to do each week, even if it's just a quick date in the living room, after the kids go to bed. DATE NIGHT has taken on a whole new meaning.

Last week, for our date, we picked out some paint for the high chair that I mentioned in my last post. We found this high chair at the antique store, for $25. We sanded it down a bit, applied a coat of primer and two coats of paint (Royal, 'Waffle Cone').



AH!! So fresh. I'm loving this and can't wait to see my little Sweet P in it. I just finished this today and she's taking a nap, but we'll be using it by dinnertime!!

For my next project, I'd love to make a little seat cover for this. I know it's kind of a random project, but if anyone has seen a tutorial out there that could help, just point me in the right direction!


  1. I actually do have one! http://racheldenbow.blogspot.com/2010/05/high-chair-seat-cover-tutorial.html

    Also, I am in love with this chair. It turned out so cute. It makes me wish I had one and a baby to put it in! Love it!
