Here is an old wooden high chair that has had several years of abuse from several families. You can only imagine the shape this was in, but since it’s solid wood you can easily refinish it.
Here it is when I received it.
Now to fixing this little gem!
This first thing I did was wipe down down the surface with denatured alcohol to get off any grease or residue. Then I sanded it with 220 sand paper to get it ready for stain.
I applied 1 coat of Dura Seal penetrating floor stain in color Coffee Brown. This stain has a sealer built in so no need to seal it like normal stains. I also used this because I love the rustic color and it’s extremely durable because it’s designed for wood floors. Follow the instructions on the can.
After I let the stain dry overnight I lightly sanded it with 320 grit paper just to slick it up a bit.
Now to the fun part of applying the clear coat. I decided on a water based finish with a satin sheen. This product can be brushed or sprayed with great results. Not all brands of finishes can be trusted. I use General Finishes because they are extremely tough, water resistant, and chemical resistant! Oh and did I forget highly scratch resistant…
Material: General Finishes high performance
Sprayer: HVLP Earlex 5500
Here are the finished results of the High Chair. It turned out great and has a super smooth glass like finish.
