My Ikea Blue Boy

Here's another quickie....This was my oldest son's (he is 18 now!) high chair that we had bought from Ikea, waaayyy back when.....of course I never threw it away. I'm either very sentimental or I'm a pack rat. Maybe just both. Anyway I painted it with my favorite paint using the color Louis Blue & a final coat of clear wax. Then I beat it up....that's my favorite part. I'm not quite sure what this says about me though....I was going to put some cute graphics on it or something but I'm thinking that I just like him this way. I call him Blue Boy.
Here's a close up of him......I also made the burlap garland which was also simple to do. I actually made it while watching television the other night. At least when I'm doing that I don't just feel like a zombie staring at the tv & doing nothing....Thinking that I might make more this week :)
