High chair for baby

Kate's baby, that is. I'm not sure who is more excited about this doll high chair makeover, Kate or me. I found this little chair on craigslist for $5 and it was too cute to pass up. Especially since they sell wooden high chairs at Pottery Barn Kids for $50! I spent $3 on a quarter yard of oilcloth fabric to recover the seat (and still have plenty of fabric left over to make place mats, lunch bags or bibs. Oilcloth is great.} I put on a coat of white paint with leftover paint from another project and voila! A new doll high chair for $8! I was thinking of stashing this away for a Christmas present but considering Kate is all over the house, it's pretty hard to keep things from her. Plus she has already taken a liking to it and likes to put her baby in the "baby high chair".

We love our little babies high chair too. Notice I said "we" :) I love the oilcloth seat though. Super cute. I have a little obsession for oilcloth as well. So functional with kids! I haven't been here in awhile, I love your knitting!

Yo Jill, you are on fire! you are so good with painting furniture--it intimidates me so. Anyway, very cute! Kate is a lucky little girl.

Jill! I think you've become my new idol. I stumbled accross this website of yours and just absolutely adore it! I just bought a sewing machine and am about to embark on the exciting adventure. You've given me so many ideas and I am excited to make them, especially those baby shoes! Well, hooray for you!

Jill (I'm emily's sis in law) Every now and then I look at your adorable blog and you are amazing! Now that the kids are in school, I will have alittle more time to myself (with only two at home) so hopefully I will be able to do some of your amazing things....I'm glad summer is over...I can't wait to see what else you do!
