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.
