Project Steps


Repainting a high chair is a simple and easy way to bring new life into an old, outdated or well-loved high chair!  We repainted the high chair we used with our other kids to a more subdued color and we also were able to hide the imperfections that come with the wear and tear of kids, but we also brought new life to this beautiful chair so that we could use it again with out last child without it looking worn out.

Repainting furniture is a wonderful way to restore, rejuvinate and spruce up old furniture!  See how I repainted this old wood high chair.

Step 1

I began my project by using an electric drill to take apart my high chair.  Then I used an electric sander to give every surface a light sanding.

Step 2

I dilluted my primer according to the chart that goes with the Finish Max.  Then I used my FinishMax to spray the primer onto all sides of the high chair.  I did two coats of primer, letting it dry completely in between the coats.

Because the weather was a little chilly, I used the Spray Shelter inside my garage to paint in for this project!  I love how it catches overspray and allows me to paint in my garage when I need to!

Step 3

After my high chair was dry, I dilluted my paint and then used my Finish Max to paint my high chair gray!  I did two coats of paint.

You can also do a coat or two of polyacrylic if you like at the end to help with durability.

Step 4

After my high chair was completely dry, I put it back together and then it was ready for my baby to use!

I love having a high chair that isn't brightly colored and that matches my decor!  It is such an easy and fun change, I wish I hadn't waited so long to do it!
