Thanks for all your design opinions on social media for this makeover. I decided to go green with a stained tray, but I used a very brown, almost distressed looking stain and a lighter green than the kelly in the inspiration photo.
Here is the used Graco highchair before:
My sister-in-law Holly recommended I use Fusion Paint. It’s called mineral paint, kinda like chalk paint, but needs minimal prep and no waxing is required.
I really liked working with it, and you can’t beat the price for specialty paint.
The color options are beautiful!

Disassembled, thanks to my husband.
After one coat.
Sanding, sanding and more sanding. It look quite a while to get that faux cherry finish off of the tray.
For the tray I went with a brown stain with no red in it. It took about four coats to get it good and dark. But I love the finished product. I do plan to seal the tray with a kid-safe food-safe sealer.
The tray finish didn’t turn out perfectly, but I am kinda glad it didn’t because then when Parker bangs on it with a fork and sippy cup I won’t be worried about the finish :)
All done and put back together!
