You can call me Martha if you really want to.

Here is a picture of Tess' high chair that I decided needed a little sprucing up.

It was just your average natural wood Eddie Bauer high chair. Y'all know the one I am talking about. It was Bram's and now it is hers. The day I found out I was having a girl I really wanted to paint it and distress it. But the thing needed to be really scrubbed down and frankly, my pregnant ass was just way to lazy.

SO, the other day Hubby decided to power wash the house and I set out the chair to be super power washed down as well. Yes, it was THAT disgusting. I let it get way out of hand, I am even willing to bet the disgustingness of this chair was talked about behind my back. You could of gotten cancer just standing next to the thing.

I finally had a clean chair to paint. After 4 days of painting, sanding and sealing it is complete and I adore it. The reason I am so excited about this chair is that this is the first project I have started and completed with a positive outcome. I love it!!!!!

And I keep my kids in a high chair for a freakishly long time so I will have another year to use this darling chair.

Chair is complete, fresh pear cake is baking, and dinner is simmering in the crock pot.

Wow. What has come over me? It must be the paint fumes......

I love that chair! Good job! Pear cake and simmering crock pot? I am impressed.
Freakishly long time? How long is too long?! Luke is 2 and still in his chair.
