Carousel Horses.

I have had so much fun today painting two Carousel Horse projects for our shop…

Here are the pictures.

We found a 1957 Wonder Bouncing Horse that had been taken off the mounts for a really good price, so we brought it home so we could brighten up the paint and make it into something wonderful.

So here is a HINT of the finished project. We drilled a hole in the center of the saddle so we could slip this horse over the COAT RACK.

Here is the finished Project. Tomorrow after the glue has had time to set up, I will paint it black and you will never know it was there.

Then this horse will be taken to our shop where he will available for sale.





Here is the second Carousel Horse we re-painted today.

This one is a much smaller version. I will be a nice bedroom decoration. The basket will be perfect for catching that clutter that seems to accumulate on the top of your dresser.

This horse started out white and very boring.  I thought it would look nice with and aged tourquoise look.

I painted a basket to match the horse.

And then I mounted them all together on a stand.
