Christmas Sled Makeover

Milk-Paint Sled Title

I was inspired by an idea I saw on Pinterest the other day so I thought I would try it too!

I was able to find a cute sled from a friend that would be perfect for my project…the sled was old and boring…not to mention full of dust, dirt and even feathers!  I guess it had been sitting in a garage for some time.  I cleaned it up a bit.Not too much though.I like the old and worn look you know.

I actually had some already mixed up milk-paint in a red and green from the dressers I had just finished up the other day.

That certainly helped!

  I used Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paints in Tricycle and Boxwood.

I lightly sanded and distressed the sled once it was painted and applied some MMS Hemp Oil as well.

I sure am feeling the holiday spirit!

Here is a picture of the before…

With just a little paint, this boring little sled came to life!

Just like Frosty when he put on his hat…whoosh!

A little paint made all the difference.
