Well, did you survive Christmas? We did, and it was a great couple of "Christmas days". When you have a couple days of family get togethers, it really extends the celebration, and then BOOM, the cleanup (or the aftermath) hits! We really had a wonderful Christmas season and the kids are really enjoying themselves with all their new treasures, as I am right now too!
I wanted to share this re-do project with you before Christmas, but didn't get time to post about it, so I am doing it now. Since it is winter I will leave this little red sled out yet for the upcoming month or two.
Let me tell you a quick story about this little red sled first....a few of my girlfriends get together every year and have a Christmas party at one of our houses, and we eat a great meal, have a glass of wine/spirits or two, and then we have a gift exchange. Well, this year we decided not to do the exchange for whatever reason and my friend Amy said to have a swap of things that we wanted to re-gift or get rid of. So, we all brought one or a few items that we didn't really care for or didn't have the decor for in our homes, and then we rummaged through everyone elses things to see if we wanted anybody elses items. Well, I picked out this sled, which another friend liked just the way it was, but I had plans for this sled.....don't get me wrong, this sled was cute, but I like more primitive pieces and I wanted to give it a good face lift, or a major distressment I guess would be a better word! ;)
I pulled off the wooden pieces and the fake straw/grass, sanded that baby down real good and painted it a few times.....and here she is....all nice and prim!
Here is another picture of it at its resting spot!
I love it this way! So girls....as promised I posted the finished product for ya....thanks Amy! ;)
