DIY Snazzy Little High Chair

I feel like I spend weeks and weeks on Pinterest collecting ideas and then for one random week I go crazy copying ideas. I KNOW! It is so so so cool, unique, and fun! So look what I did with that inspiration.
I apologize for less than stellar photos. I completed this one during my maniacal race to get a truckload full of “stuff” to take up to Trina Rose Boutique before their store opening. And it had just snowed… obviously.

The stickers were soaked through and really a pain to peel off.(I should have waited to peel them off till after I painted the gray stripes-but apparently I enjoy making more work for myself)
