Refinished Highchair

I found this Eddie Bauer highchair at a garage sale for $10.  It had a few scratches on it and the cherry color didn’t match our dining room so we decided to refinish it.


We started out using the same Zinsser StripFast Spray-On Stripper that we used when we did the dining room chairs.  It didn’t work nearly as well as it did on the chairs so there was quite a bit of sanding that had to be done as well.


Once we were done sanding it, it was finished with two coats of stain. We used the same kind that we used on the dining room chairs which was the Minwax PolyShades with a satin finish in black.  On the dining room chair we only used one coat so you could still see some of the woodgrain and brown coloring but since we needed this chair to be easy to clean, we figured two coats would be best.  If we did this project again we would probably not use a stain & varnish 2-in-1 again.

In the end, we are happy with how it turned out and now our little guy will be able to use it in a couple more months!
