Restoring Vintage Doll Furniture

My mom and I tackled the task of restoring vintage doll furniture. It was an antique set that included a baby doll cradle and highchair. I knew my girls would enjoy using them for their baby dolls.

Bringing new life to these antique pieces was a labor of love. It was also a really sweet time for making memories.

The first thing we did was carefully disassemble both the high chair and the cradle.

STEP 1: Disassemble

After we had taken the cradle and high chair apart, we began the process of lightly sanding each piece of furniture.

STEP 2: Sand

Next up, we evenly covered our furniture in the Kilz Original Interior Primer Spray, and then let it dry.

STEP 3: Prime

Now it was time to paint! We used Rustoleum Chalked Matte Spray Paint for the project.

STEP 4: Paint

After allowing our primed and painted pieces to dry for several hours, we reassembled them!

STEP 5: Reassemble

After everything was reassembled, we sprayed it with Krylon Matte Finish Sealant Spray. About any kind of matte finishing spray should do the job.

STEP 6: Finishing Spray
