While the pink and purple were a cute color combination,
the dirt and crayon scribbles had to go.
I cleaned off the rocking horse before giving it a good sanding.
I cleaned it again to make sure it was free from the dust from sanding it
and to make sure all of the crayon marks were removed.
Then I primed it with white spray primer by Rustoleum
and painted it in Blossom White by Rustoleum.
Once the rocking horse was dry,
I hand sanded the edges to allow some of the pink and purple to show through.
I also hand waxed the rocking horse with a furniture wax
to help protect it before adding a lavender wreath around her neck.
The wreath is made from a few pieces of faux lavender that I had
leftover from making this wreath.
