Red Jenny Lind High Chair

This is actually NOT a projector project (though I do have one more in the works to show you.)   :)  If you are one of the few people out there who have yet to enter the giveaway, there’s still time before the Artograph Projector becomes someone else’s this Friday!

I picked up this adorable Jenny Lind Spindle High Chair at a yard sale the last weekend for $7.


After going round and round about how to finish it, I decided on a deep, Pottery Barn style red with a black glaze.  I love how it turned out!





This and all the rest of my current inventory (along with the stuff I’m going to try and get done in the next few weeks) are going to be available for sale at the Junkrestore Vintage Market in Camp Verde, AZ, put on by Tara of Junkrestore, November 19th and 20th (the weekend before Thanksgiving.)  Camp Verde is a great, central Arizona location!  Those of you in Phoenix, it’s a quick jaunt north.  From the Prescott area, it’s just a skip to the east.  From Flagstaff, head a smidge south and you’re there.  From Payson, just a mosey to the northwest.  This is going to be a great sale with lots of fantastic vendors.  I’ll share more information as we get closer to the date.


  1. Ah very cute!! I love the color- it turned out great! Also, I have a giveaway going on right now! Don't forget to stop by and check it out {it's my first one}.


  2. I wish I lived in AZ....
    Looks great!

  3. Oh that is so pretty. That would look so much nicer in the corner of my dining room than the plastic graco one I have. Nice job!

  4. Oh yeah! I loved her Barn Sale this past summer! I'll be there!

  5. it looks so cute! and i think melanie (frosted garnder) did a red hugh chair, too once for a client. they always look so happy and fun! red just makes anything better.

  6. I love that old style of highchair, I wish I had something like that when my kids were little instead of the big ugly plastic thing.
    I just painted a Jenny lind style bed for my daughters room this weekend.

  7. What a fun high chair! Love the red. I wish I lived closer. I would come to the Vintage Market.

  8. Oh this turned out so sweet! Makes me wish I had a need for a high chair again. :) Well done Ann Marie.

  9. You are so creative and I LOVE your ideas! The highchair looks so cute that color. I wish I could go to your sale!

  10. i love this!! now i am going to be on the hunt for one of these before we even start having kiddos...can't wait ;)

  11. So cute! My mom has ours, but it needs you have to put any type of "food safe" coating over the tray???

  12. Hi Ann Marie, The high chair is adorable painted red. These are so much cuter than the newer plasic ones. Good luck with your sale..I only wish I lived closer. Take care.
    xoxo, Sherry

  13. I love this high chair! I hope I can join you guys next month for the barn sale. I need to get busy.

  14. Yay, I'm your 900th follower. I love your blog, thanks to Shelley F (the most amazing woman whom I adore) for posting about it on facebook today.

    I love fun projects like this and have plenty of painted furniture, even orange boxes painted with chalk paint for my office when I ran out of money. They make great "drawers".

  15. Beautiful! You picked the perfect color too.

  16. Love your refinished high chair! Did you use spray paint or regular can paint? Thank you!!

    1. This one was a canned spray paint, Krylon Cherry Red, a favorite, with a black glaze over that. Thanks!


We love lovely gals showin' some love!
