Antique High Chair Painted With Milk Paint


This is Alfred, an antique wooden high chair, that I purchased from an Estate Sale. He was hidden above the rafters and when they brought him down I tried to hold my excitement inside so the lady wouldn't give me a high price. Needless to say it was a better price than I expected.

For this particular piece I just wanted to use the Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint products. I wanted to practice on my milk paint technique and this was the perfect furniture to do it.

To achieve this color I used 2 parts Ironstone and 1 part Kitchen Scale.

I also made a simple seat cushion out of a European grain sack and added a little lace to the back ties.

This is Alfred before his makeover. Great bones and very sturdy.

I love using the hemp oil because it's all natural and gives this piece a wonderful luster.
