Cute Little Wood Sled

A cute little wood sled that was $2.00 at a garage sale.  Since I found one with the metal runners about three years ago back in New York, I made this one over for my booth.

I painted it up with Old White chalk paint.

I added a simple ribbon bow to the top and that was it!  Here is how it would look hanging on a front door.  Of course, you could do so much more to it like painting a design on it, using vinyl lettering, stencil it, but I decided to keep it simple for whoever buys it to add their own embellishment or personal touch.

I brought this to my booth already since they had a Christmas in July promotion going on last weekend.

Very pretty - love the white and the bow. I was just looking at the big one I got earlier this year. Planning to do a union jack on it. Wish me luck!

I love the sled painted white. I think it's great that you kept it plain for someone else to add their own touch to it. I looked for a sled for my front door this past winter with no luck at all. Hope you're having a really nice summer. We're doing well here. Olivia is doing great. She's super alert now and she smiled at me for the first time last week! :) ~ Jamie

So cute, Kathy. I have been eyeing a sled at our shop, but it's a full size oldie, and more than I want to pay. I'm hoping I can get a discount- ha! :D
