Reupholstering High Chair Chevron Pattern Vintage

Reviving A Vintage High Chair

So there is this SUPER nice lady named Kristy, she contacted me ages ago to have me paint a cute old vanity pink.

Of course I painted it.  But that is not what this post is about!
When Kristy came to pick up her darling little vanity she asked me if I would like to have this AWESOME vintage high chair that was about to make its way into the endless pit that is DI...

Heart racing I said that I would LOVE to take it off her hands

Here it is.

It has been sitting in the corner of my dinning room for quite some time now.   I was waiting for the perfect fabric.  This teal and cream chevron jumped out at me as soon as I saw it...I bought the entire role of what was left determined to find something to use it on for my little man. 

This just seams so perfect!

OK, so it was a really quick job...
Remove seat cushions and take off old beige sparkly fabric...

cut new fabric and wrap the cushion like a present. ! Make sure you do the edges last so it will be straight and pretty when you turn it over.

cut off excess fabric... 

I may still be changing the color of the tray and foot rest, but I cant decide on a faded putrid green or cream. 
What do you think?

    Depends on what other colors you have in the room, but I'd paint the tray a red shade!

  7. I have an old highchair I would like to recover and i'm wondering what you used to attach the new fabric to the seat base? Staples? Glue? I love the Chevron pattern, truly funky! :)
