Happy Tuesday, friends! Remember last week when I shared with you the vintage high chair makeover? Well, I added a sweet little monogram, so come check it out! I think you’ll love it!
To refresh your memory, this is how the high chair looked when I purchased it. I had the chair for several years, and last week I finally got around to refinishing it! If you’d like to see step-by-step pictures you can click here: Vintage High Chair Makeover!
Once I was able to completely strip off the old decals and paint, I gave the high chair a few light coats of semi-gloss white paint. And this is how it turned out! The high chair looks brand new, but with vintage charm.
I felt like the high chair still needed a little something extra, so I ordered a monogram decal with our grandson’s initials.
(If you have a Cricut Maker or Silhouette machine you can certainly make your own.) I ordered this one from an Etsy shop online for about $5. The decal came in the mail yesterday and I couldn’t wait to put it on the high chair!
Shout out to @southernedgestudio.etsy.com for this beautiful monogram!
The application was so quick and easy! You simply place the decal where you want it, and rub it on with a credit card, then carefully remove the backing. I ordered the 5 inch monogram in gray, which turned out to be the perfect size! For durability I’ll probably paint some clear modge-podge glue on top of the monogram to make sure it doesn’t come off.
Can you believe the before and after pictures? This little high chair turned out even better than I imagined! (And if you are a DIY person, you know this is not always the case! LOL) It was totally worth the effort!
And with and without the monogram……
This is my husband feeding his “little doppelgänger” this past Sunday. My husband, our son and our grandson all share the same initials, so this vintage high chair sort of represents all 3 generations! I can’t wait to see our little guy in his vintage high chair!
Later this week I’ll share the progress on our lake house. Fingers crossed for good painting weather! And by the way, if you have a Circuit or Silhouette machine, I’d love to know what you think and how easy they are to use, etc. I’m thinking of buying one so I’d love some feedback! I hope you have a great day. xoxo Dell
