Dipped Leg Vintage Highchair

I hope you had a safe and fun time ringing in the New Year last night!  My husband is a police officer and usually works on New Years Eve night, but this year he worked during the day, so I actually got to spend the evening with him!  Of course, the year he doesn’t work, I’m pregnant!  So no crazy partying for us last night…we just hung out with our daughter and drank sparkling grape juice together!  :)

I’m excited to be starting this new year and for all that it will bring!  I can’t wait to work on even more furniture transformations, continue updating our house, and of course MEET OUR NEW BABY!

So, in keeping with the baby theme, I wanted to share this cute vintage highchair that I recently updated.

The highchair was in good condition when I got it off Craigslist this past summer.  I was actually picking up a different piece of furniture that day and when I got to the location, the seller offered me this highchair, too.  I just couldn’t pass it up!

I used a custom mix of Annie Sloan Chalk Paints to create this fun color.

And I added a touch of modern style by “dipping” the legs in Old White.

Looking for even more highchair goodness?  Check out this adorable Vintage Highchair painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint from Making Home Base.  It’s a beauty for sure!

  1. Beautiful!!! I’ve run across a few highchairs lately, and I just couldn’t think creatively enough to buy it. You did a great job on this one!! I love the pop of white at the bottom!! I didn’t know you were pregnant… congrats!!!! Hugs!!!

  2. Cute! I love how you painted that highchair! I have a wooden high chair that we used for our girls. Now that my baby is 7 I want to sell it but hubby is not too keen on that idea for some reason. Sigh. Guess we will save it for Grandkids!

  18. Oh my gosh I love this! The legs are my favorite! Beautiful job Allison :)

  19. Hello! I found you at Feathered Nest Friday and am very glad I did. I have a very similar highchair and just LOVE the color you painted yours! You did a fantastic job! And the legs are awesome!!

  20. So fun – great job!!

  21. My mom has a highchair just like this. I told her not to get rid of it, because we could paint it and make it so cute. I’ll have to show her this – great timing!

  22. I don’t have kids, so I have absolutely no need for a high chair, but this is just so darn cute! I personally love the colors you picked out, as I’m just a touch obsessed with any color in the teal/blue family :)

    I would love it if you would link up at Martha Mondays, open now through Wednesday night!



  23. That is just too cute! I love the color you chose. It makes it look so different. Megan

    I was looking through your blog (now following you on Pinterest and FB) and noticed your map art. I totally just left a comment for you on Hometalk about it (I made a similar one recently).

  33. I love the high chair if only I didn’t live in a different country…………

  34. So cute! I love the color and the “dipped” legs are the perfect detail!

  35. I love this! I really dislike the way new highchairs look, so I love the idea of going vintage. You did a great job!

  36. So fun! I love the colour you created. The legs remind me of little white socks…perfect for a high chair.

  37. YAY!!!! Saw you were featured on Miss Mustard Seed’s site!!! So excited for you!!! Hugs!!!

    Oh my goodness I love this color!! Do you mind sharing your recipe? Love, love, love!!

    • Allison @ The Golden Sycamore says:

      Hi Melanie! I believe I used Antibes Green, Provence, Old White, and Graphite. Equal parts of each…I think! I didn’t write this one down, unfortunately! :(

  39. Hi — Just stumbled upon this and I love the color of this high-chair! Can you tell me what colors you mixed? Please send me an email, I would love to chat about it!


  40. So cute!! I am wanting to paint a high chair and was wondering what you used as a paint protector? And is it safe for baby to eat off of?
