Vintage Wooden High Chair with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

For Peighton’s first birthday, I had this vision of taking a smash cake picture of her in a vintage wooden high chair. I found one in great condition on Facebook Marketplace and I thought it would look really wonderful painted and slightly distressed. I painted it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Duck Egg Blue. I love the way it turned out and it was a really wonderful addition to her special day.

Finding vintage high chairs is a bit tricky and to find one that hasn’t yet been refinished it even tougher. I found this one for just $10 which was a total score.

The antique high chair wasn’t in the greatest condition but that was fine with me because I knew it would look wonderful with a fresh coat of 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 the color Duck Egg Blue for this chair and it 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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?

    1. 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!
