Pin It

Baby Throne in Blue

Oh, Duck Egg Blue, I heart you!
That was a poem. Beautiful huh? Annie Sloan’s, Duck Egg Blue is a supertastic color! I already have other pieces I want to use it on. And combine it with Old White? Yes please.
Found this antique highchair at a yard sale. I won’t tell you how much I paid for this little gem. But trust me, you’d be jealous. The thing I love most about it is the shape of the legs! The arm rests and front legs are one long piece of wood. Beautiful, bendy wood.
I would like to say that this was a quick piece to do. But with all the round parts, and bends, it actually took quite a while. Had to make sure I got it all. I left the tray exactly as it was. Okay, yes. I cleaned it. But the chipped and cracked (probably lead) paint added character.
See. Isn’t this thing cute? Would look great in a dining room with wood floors, with an old barn table, and large hutch, all painted with beautiful, tasty chalk paint. Tasty chalk paint.
Look at those legs! LOVE!
I love what the dark wax adds to each piece.
And sanding. Nothing sands like ASCP. It’s so unpredictable. But it never peels, like latex. Latex <----- That should be a bad word. The more I use ASCP, the more I like it. Okay. Love it! Love love love love love it!
If it fits your décor, where would you put something like this?

So cute! I just found one of my kids' old highchairs when we moved things to install a new furnace! Thought I had gotten rid of them all!

I love how shabby chic this is. The blue is so sweet.

I host a weekly upcycling party and would love it if you linked this project up.

Men sure know how to spot a good pair of legs. Great job, loving the duck egg blue. I would put it in any room, a bedroom with a lamp on it. A throw over the back side. Did you get you mixer? Thanks for sharing at Sunday's Best.
