rocking horse re-do.

last fall i bought an old wooden rocking horse at an antique mall, for close to nothing.

it's dingy.
it's damaged.
it's just plain gross.

since it's purchase, it's been sitting in our basement, mostly because i have been trying to figure out what i want to do with the thing. i know i want to freshen it up, clean it up, and pretty much re-do every single surface of it. i just have to decide on the overall look i want. i'm thinking of painting it like this. i absolutely love swedish dala horses.

overly ambitious? probably! i just hope i can finish this project, before baby bug is ready to ride it. my current lack of project completion is getting pretty ridiculous.

happy thursday! {monica}

  3. OH that would be so incredibly cute! You can do it! xoxo

  4. Thanks for your comment this morning. It's been a while since I've stopped by here, but congrats on the little one!! Also, I love dala rocking horse idea! Go for it!! Xo, Katie

  5. i think that's a lovely idea. overly ambitious, maybe but a good project if you can leave it in the basement and do little bits at a time.

    thank you for YOUR encouraging comments on my blog. :)
