I love it, however it needed some major updating.. the yarn hair was yucky, it was all marked up, and the little sticker embellishment had to leave! ... :)
I FINALLY have gotten around to re*sanding this baby and re*staining.
After re-staining it like 5 times, I gave up on the whole wooden look.
The stain was just not cooperating!!.. It was so uneven I was getting so frustrated!
So I took a trip to JoAnn's and bought some primer with a 40% off coupon.
and scored 2 Rustoleum 'Summer Squash' spray cans for (you ready for this?!...) $1.97!!
I was happier than a kid in a candy store.
Afterwards, I applied 2 coats of poly.
Anyways.. Here are some BEFORE PICTURES.. & AFTER PICTURES
HERE ARE THE AFTER PICTURES
I just used all the original hardware.
I also used the same eyeballs and didn't do anything to the handle.
& crochet'd a whole new mane and tail.
I made a loop in the mane so the handle wouldn't be covered with it.
The tail was crochet'd using a curlicue scarf tutorial.
They were then applied with a hot glue gun.
Jayden is the name of my first born so I painted on his name on one side of the horse.
Jensen is going to be the name of this July baby whether it's a boy or a girl so I painted that name on the other side of the horse!
What do you think!?
