Refinishing my Father’s Highchair

20171024_141929.jpg

This highchair was my father’s and had been sitting in an attic in Georgia for several years before it was brought down and moved back to Indiana where he grew up.

I spent a few days cleaning and sanding it and refinishing it before applying a new finish and getting it ready for another generation of use.

Here is the chair as I received it.

Here are some photos of the refinished piece. I tried to keep the same look and feel and didn’t really want to change how it may have appeared over 70 years ago.
