The back alley has been very forthcoming this summer! Another find I scored… just a plain wooden Ikea highchair that was headed for the land fill.

Okay… I’m getting really bad at remembering to photograph the “before” pics!!

I’m in the middle of priming something (argh).

I grabbed it and immediately knew it would look soooooooo much better if it was bright red. Another trip to Home Depot where I bought 2 cans of Rustoleum spray paint in apple red. I wanted a satin finish, but they only had gloss in stock, so I bought it anyway hoping it would look alright. I primed it using a spray primer and then got to applying the red. The gloss actually looks great – I applied three coats of paint and called it a day. Done. … A nice splash of colour!


The poor thing sat in my garage like this for several weeks… I just didn’t LOVE it. It needed a little something, but it didn’t hit me until I was stenciling my Pretty Little Thing – it needs a little splash of white!

I like the upgrade:

Here’s the before and after pics:

Hope you like it!
