Vintage Wooden High Chair with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

 For my little lady’s first birthday party (you can see the party details here), Ever since my I saw this gorgeous Vintage Highchair painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on The Golden Sycamore, I really wanted to find a vintage wooden high chair that I could paint!

 After hunting for a vintage high chair for awhile I finally found the perfect one…

and I’m so happy to share this wooden high chair with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

Of course, refinished wooden high chairs are not only hard to find but they are pricey!

So imagine my excitement when I discovered this gem of a high chair at my favorite thrift shop. I snagged this baby up for only $10.

Although it’s condition was poor, I knew it could be gorgeous with a little love and some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

About Annie Sloan Chalk Paint: this was my first project using it and it lived up to it’s reputation. So easy to use, no sanding, super easy to get the distressed look. My husband and I, both, loved it.

We used Annie Sloan’s Duck Egg Blue for this chair. The color went perfect with the pink and aqua colors of the party. We decided to use dark wax for the finish and I’m so glad we did. It gave such a vintage feel. I was so impressed with how little goes a long way.

Oh I just love the finished look. The curves are so pretty. I’m so glad we were able to revive it.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to enjoy this chair with me.

    I had a vintage wooden high chair and i used it as a plant stand for a long time (no little ones to sit in it anymore). I finally sold it at a garage sale for next to nothing…someone scored on that one. :)

    Hey! Awesome high chair! With the ASCP did u use wax? Does the ASCP stand up to stains? Is it safe to eat off? I can’ t find this info any where! Thank you! Judy

    I’ve been gifted a vintage wooden high chair for my daughters first birthday and I want to paint it like this, but it’s been painted twice with spray paint. Do I need to sand that all down first?

    • says

      If it’s been painted previously, I would sand it down that way you can really do a quality job. I’m sure it will look great! Let me know if you have any questions, Lauren!
