Improving your Antilop highchair





Materials: Antilop highchair, and two Antilop trays

Description: The only thing that’s missing on Antilop is some support for the child’s feet.

My husband got this great idea after I had done the typical wife-bitching and demanded a better chair for our daughter.

Your simply buy an extra tray; drill four holes (use a machine that can drill big enough holes for the legs!) – one in each “corner”, and put the legs of the chair through the holes.

The tray will stay in place without glue, and can be placed exactly where you need it.
An extra bonus, is that it’s catching food as well :-)

    Oh wow…this is a winner! Thanks for sharing. The lack of a foot rest always bothered me, my knees tend to serve that purpose which means I usually end up wearing the menu!

    I tried to do the trick as described but I do not manage to assemble the feet : the feet get wider and the tray is not large enough. So I cut each corner and link them to the feet using an elastic, and it works well. Thanks for the tips, my child is so happy now !
