Rocking Horse Revamp

We scored this sweet little rocking horse at a garage sale one balmy Friday morning and decided she had good bones, but desperately needed a revamp. 

The best part?  She was only $5!


First order of business...cutting off the nappy "mane" and "tail."  Harrison helped me sand her down and clean her up and we put a few coats of fresh black paint.  After letting it dry (which Harrison though would never happen), we lightly sanded it to give it a distressed look. 

The end result...


She's a beauty!

Keep an eye out in future blog posts about our new rocking horse.  I can't really say there's a happy story about it, i.e. "this wooden rocking horse was made by Great Uncle So-and-So and it's ___ years old..."  However, she was $5 and no one knows the difference!
