Instead of getting two high chairs, marks mom found us an old wooden chair that has arm rests and is higher than a typical chair. It works great for our 2 year old, but it needed a new coat of paint. We brought it outside and sprayed it down and scrubbed it, but the seat started bubbling up and we had to scrape off the top layer of plywood. At first we weren’t too excited about pulling off a whole layer of wood, until we realized we could then stain it instead of paint it! We let our little guy pick out the color, and are pretty happy with the results.
