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!
