It's so fun to transform something besides the usual furniture, this time it was a vintage rocking horse
The owner of Orange Tree Antiques gave me this poor little pony, she thought maybe I could do something with it....Giddy up...
....Oh yes I could, I painted it with homemade chalk paint in heirloom white...She already feels better....Oh yes, she's a girl pony for sure!
Then I sanded her a little and used Annie Sloan dark wax to age her and applied water slide decals of roses on her legs.
How to make water slide decals can be found HERE.
I have had a lot of requests to make flower water slide decals to sell and I promise you, it is on my list to do after my son's November wedding.
The horse's mane was upholstery fringe I already had and the pearl eyes were from vintage earrings
And there you have it......Meet...."Abby Rose"
OH, I don't think it's ever a good idea to name your projects.....
....If I had a girl this would be staying right here. Can't you see this in a little girls room or a nursery?
"Abby Rose" galloped over to my booth at Orange Tree Antiques where I priced her at $45.00
I love doing transformations, but I have to tell you....Some are a lot more fun than others!
