Hi all,

We got a highchair from freecycle recently. The structure of it was fine, but the upholstery quite old and tired. I washed it to start with, but even washed it was a bit tiered, so I decided to reupholster it. I had some of the fishy fabric left from a different project, just enough to finish it and since I have learned recently how to do piping, you can guess the rest... Here are pictures of the finished highchair. As you can see I didn't have enough of the red thread, so had to use some of the blue one for the reinforcement of the back. The back pocket came out quite well, I am happy with it.

Let me know what you think...

You did a fantastic job on it!  I think the fishy pattern is great!

As a side note, please check with the manufacturer of the high chair that it wasn't recalled.  Wink

Where did you get that fantabulous fabric?  This looks amazing! You did a fantastic job.

On a side note, this looks like a graco high chair, and I couldn't find it in the recall list.  BUUUUT, if it is recalled, sometimes instead of just tossing it, you can get repair kits from the company, and fix the problem yourself.

Sorry for being such a flake. Sad

Just spotted this - love the piping! And the fish too, of course.
