Turquoise Rocking Horse

Looking for a few more unique items to sell in our booth, this little giraffe caught my eye. Cute as he is....I decided to update him a bit.

A base coat of Annie Sloan graphite, Valspar weathered crackle glaze and a top coat of oops return turquoise paint transformed Mr. Giraffe into a sleek riding pony.
 A new mane, ears, and a tail were added using burlap with a fleur de lis print, and a couple silver accents that came out of my scrapbook stash. These were glued on and a bit of soft trim that looks like barbed wire finished the mane area.

Two wood drawer handles were attached using a doweling screw for new eyes.

Yee Haw!  Grab your lasso and saddle up!

What a sweet transformation. All you need now is a lasso, some cowboy boots and a Roy Rogers movie to ride along with!
