This old wooden high chair had seen better days...After sanding it too, and painting it in colors I think any child would love, it has been reborn!
This is our beautiful local land mark, Mt. Diablo, which I can see out my front window at home, and my classroom window at school! Lucky me!
I still have the tray to finish, but I havent quite decided what to do yet...
Front view...
I found this funky little swivel/rocking chair at a local thrift store. It was a mess, so I sanded and painted it and recovered it with recycled jeans. It now lives happily in my studio and its actually pretty comfy!

These thrift store finds I picked up for next to nothing and I had just a little TOO much fun refinishing them!

area, North Carolina. I would rather repurpose than toss. Posted: 11:23 am on February 24th
