A Quick Fix

A quick, ever so random post about nothing monumental. Just a girl, her horse, and a love for all things blue.

Before:
Please excuse the crappy iPhone pic.


This wooden horse was purchased at an estate sale in Hinsdale a couple weeks ago. His origianl price was $16, but it was the second day of the sale so we got him for $8. He was pretty beat up well loved so B sanded him down, put his hair in pony tails (ha-h, a no pun intended) and primed him. We waited 24 hours before giving him the first coat of navy spray paint. Between coats, B wet sanded with a super fine grain sand paper for a smoother texture.We did four coats total. We were both stoked to give it to T, but she moaned and told us to paint it yellow. Figures. Not a major upgrade, but at least she's wearing pants in the after photo.

  2. We wrapped his hair up in plastic bags, then secured it with a rubber band. He had three pony tails up front and one big one on the tail. Oh, and we covered his eyes with painters tape.
