From a really LOW chair, to high chair again!

This high chair had potential, I knew that,but to really appreciate how bad it was when I got it, you have to see the before pictures!
First, I put on gloves and hosed it down and dried it quickly. It was pretty disgusting! Then scrubbed it with mild soap and water.
This close up shows you that this one was not for the weak of heart (or stomach!)
Next I sanded it lightly, repainted the tray, added some fabric hearts to the chair back and then sealed it with clear, baby safe sealer. Much better now than when I got it! :)

This high chair was feeling pretty low, but with a little TLC, it's ready to go again!
