I made these using Ana's plans, of course, for our friend's little girl's 2nd birthday. I didn't want to paint them brown but my friend said Elli's room was brown and pink and she really wanted them that color. So...here they are and I love them!!!
I would say the hardest part was the high chair-I always end up with one leg shorter than the others(I have made 3 high chairs so far).
Built from Plan(s)
$40.00 for the pair
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
I got to use my Kreg Jig and tried the glue/sawdust method to fill the holes(didn't like it) so switched to plugs and I loved the results after sanding them down to surface level. I just painted them brown with some flat interior latex that I got as an "oops" for 1.50 at store near by and then painted the pink stripes(also "oops" paint). I didn't like the flat look so I used spray lacquer for a glossier more finished look. I also made the mattress(at HL you can get a square of foam big enough for 2 mattresses for about 8.00) and quilt and pillow from some pink w/white polka dot and white w/pink polka dot fabrics that I had lying around.
