A Special Gift For A Special Little Girl | Wooden Rocking Horse No. 2

September 19, 2016 by Terry

Do you remember this sweet little rocking horse that I made over for one of my special clients?  Well, a couple of months ago I was asked if I would do another one for her, only this time it would be for a girl!

This time the horse wasn’t as large or as detailed so this was my opportunity to make it as detailed and pretty as it deserved to be!  Every little princess should have a pretty horse to ride right?

I wanted to give this little princess a customized sparkly ride so I got out the FAT paint in Pink Cashmere and some metallic paints and set to work.

Here are the results!

This sweet little horse got a diamond encrusted saddle and handles as well as her initials branded on the hip with glitter!

Since the original yarn mane and tail were lacking in the glam dept. we gave them a few ribbon curls through out … ‘extensions’ if you will ;)

Now this little princess can ride in style!

I hope she enjoys her 1st birthday gift from her auntie Christina.  What a great tradition you have started by giving each of your nieces and nephews a horse for their first birthdays.

Thank you so much Larissa @prodigalpieces for tagging me in today's #trashure fun!  I don't know that this French chair was trash to begin with but it certainly did make its way into being a treasure indeed! This is my most recent makeover!💕#makeover #beautiful #statementpiece #upholstery #frenchchair There are 2 sides to everything and in this makeover too!  Velvety glam on the front and a modern statement in peacock feathers hugging the back!  Soooo pretty! 💕💕#thecuratorscollection #obsessed #sofine #soglam #feathers #velvet #statementpiece #beautiful #makeover #upholstery I am obsessed!! These (there are 2!) might just be the most luxurious chairs I have ever re upholstered! Gorgeous metallics mixed with luxurious fine velvets!  Wait till you see the backside of these chairs!  They will be delivered to their home tomorrow morning!  Can't wait!! #luxury #glamglow #makeover #upholstered #stunning #thecuratorscollection #soglam #sofine #obsessed Okay... here's a peek at the "during" of these two sweet chairs. They were  my client's Nana's chairs and it is my hope that Nana would be pleased with this makeover. #nanaschair #thecuratorscollection #makeover #upholstered #velvet #newlook #soglam #metallic So this is what has been keeping me busy these days... actually there are 2 of them! Without giving away what they look like now I thought I would share what the choices for fabric were first. My client chose the print for the backside and the velvet for the front side with exquisite soft pink velvet for the welting and the arms. I also gave the orange looking wood a glamorous look with some warm silver metallic paint. I hope to share with you soon! I don't want to share the reveal before the owner has had a chance to see them :). #thecuratorscollection #upholstered #makeover #velvet #soglam #mynanas Soooooo this is my current situation.... I'm on sewing machine number three in 2 days and a deadline nearing the end in 4 days! 😬 I SWEAR ITS NOT ME! Lol... hubby is trying to fix mine after bringing me home one from one of his co-worker's wife's ... how sweet is he? 💕huge shout out of gratitude to Mrs. Schafer for helping me in a pinch! 😘🌷#stressfulday #sewing #upholstery #deadlines #sweetpeople #thankyou #gratitude
