Help Me Paint My Highchair

When I first purchased our highchair, I was pretty stoked. I had been looking for a wooden one for a while. I have been happy with it, however the finish is wearing quite thin making it more difficult than it has to be to wipe clean. This morning I forgot to clean up after an oatmeal breakfast before leaving for the morning. Oops. I spent 15 minutes scraping it with a little hard plastic pot scraper.

So to remedy this, I thought I would refinish it so it is nice and shiny new, and easy to wipe down. But then I saw some cute painted highchairs, and I wanted to do that too! I think I am leaning toward painting it, something nice and glossy, but I’m not quite sure of what colour to do. This is where your help comes in!

At the end of this post I have a simple poll. Just pick which colour you think I should paint it! But before that, here are a few photos I enjoyed (click the photo for source):

For a little refresher, here is my highchair. It does not need to match my wall colour since these walls are not mine and I do not like them.

High Chair

Have you ever painted a high chair or anything else that constantly needs to be wiped down? Have any tips for me?

Help Me Garden

I have never gardened. I have never even owned a house plant until Amy gave me one when we moved here. The white flower is turning brown and the dirt is mouldy (sorry Amy). But I have wanted to garden for a while! That counts for something, right?

In my first place, the little bit of yard I had was north facing and under cedar trees. In the last place there were deer around all the time. But this place…

Beautiful, isn’t it?

It came with a garden!

Now I need all you experienced people to help me out. I’m pretty sure this needs to be cleared, but where do I go from there? And nothing really gets planted ’til the Spring, right? Here are a few more close up photos of what is there.

Lots of weeds and leaves. And extra containers for extra stuff.

If these were alive, Calvin would love them.

Were these perhaps once sweat peas? I love sweat peas!

I don’t know how long we will live here, but it would be nice to have something to work on next year. Learn some new skills and all that.

Give me your know-how! Please!
