I should preface this my quoting myself about 15 years ago: "Mom, who would want to collect children's chairs? I just don't get it. They don't even look cute. I WILL NEVER collect something like that". My Mom had a love for children's chairs. I just didn't get it at the time. Now I am EATING MY WORDS. Who would have thought I, me, myself, moi, would be collecting children's chairs. Well, they have grown on me over the years and now I love them...especially one with a good patina. I'm sure my Mom is in heaven laughing a me and recalling the words I said to her back in the day! Enjoy the laugh, Mom.
So, now here are two of the many children's chairs I have floating around the house.
sexy glasses...you know you want some!
Next, I used the jig-saw to cut out the hole I had previously traced, so the bowl would have a place to sit.
I sanded the edges where I had just cut to add back the worn look.
The chair was put together using dowels, but was a bit loose in one area, so I used wood glue and clamped it for a while just to make it a bit more sturdy.
Getting bigger and loving his daddy!!
