This next project was truly a labor of love! It took quite some time to get it how I envisioned it, but I am so stoked by how it turned out!
I drive by the most adorable country store on my way to work everyday. One day as I was driving by I saw this cute little rocking horse in the front of the store.
As you know from my recent posts, I have all things baby on my mind. I went there on my lunch break to see if I could get a decent price-knowing it was an antique I was a little leary, but the shop owner was the sweetest lady & gave me a great deal.
It needed work though. I know some people cringe at painting an antique, but I feel it is important to love what you have in a room & if you don’t love it, what is the point?
I didn’t love it, but knew I could & now I absolutely love it!! I went with yellow & gray as those are the colors the Mom To Be chose for the nursery.
I even braided ribbon & yarn for the tail. The eyes were the hardest, but I think they are so sweet now. When the baby is named I plan to paint it on the side.
Trust me when I tell you I really did a happy dance when she was complete! My Son caught me & said I was losing my marbles 🙂 anyway here she is in all her glory:
