Thrift Store Rocking Horse Shabby Makeover

I've had babies on the brain lately.
So many friends are expecting right now.

I guess that is why this sweet little rocking horse caught my eye
while I was at a thrift store recently.


While the pink and purple were a cute color combination,
the dirt and crayon scribbles had to go.


I cleaned off the rocking horse before giving it a good sanding.
I cleaned it again to make sure it was free from the dust from sanding it 
and to make sure all of the crayon marks were removed.


Then I primed it with white spray primer by Rustoleum
and painted it in Blossom White by Rustoleum.


Once the rocking horse was dry,
I hand sanded the edges to allow some of the pink and purple to show through.


I also hand waxed the rocking horse with a furniture wax
to help protect it before adding a lavender wreath around her neck.

The wreath is made from a few pieces of faux lavender that I had
leftover from making this wreath.


The wreath and the rocking horse are both available in my Etsy shop here and here.


Wouldn't this rocking horse look darling on top of an armoire
 in a shabby nursery or little girls room?

I think so.

Have you found any fun items at a thrift store lately that you've given new life to?
'til next time,
