Furniture Facelift Friday: Repainted 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 and you might be featured on my blog!

    That is a work of art. What a great talent she has.

  2. 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?
