Furniture Facelift Friday: Repainted Rocking Horse

rocking-horse

My mom, Marilyn, does amazing work and I have FINALLY gotten her to send me a photo of some of her work. Technically a rocking horse is more of a toy, but this thing is as big as a piece of furniture! And it is so beautiful that it looks more like a decoration than a toy.

Around Christmas I love ideas for things like this because they make the best Christmas presents. I love old vintage toys that are solid and well built.

Furniture Facelift Friday:
Every Friday I post before and after pics of a furniture restoration or repurpose. If you have any before and after photos you would like to submit, just post them to my Facebook wall at www.facebook.com/Jonesing2Create and you might be featured on my blog!

    Just beautiful! I have two rocking horses I just bought, but they need tails. What did she use for the tail and mane on hers? I really love the look.

    How did you attach the mane & tail onto the horse?
