A little while ago my mom found this adorable rocking horse for my kiddos, for an absolute steal (something like $2, woop woop!). The only downside was that we really weren’t fans of the colour scheme. So i decided to give it a quick update with some spray paint. In my infinite wisdom i decided to ignore stupid questions from my brother along the lines of : Did you sand before you painted? Did you use primer? and, What kind of paint is that anyway??
So, yes, the rocker looked really cute for about six months, after which all the “love” my kids showed it helped the original paintwork to show through. oops. I absolutely adore this little rocker, and the colours i chose – but unfortunately now i’m going to have to take a little time to remove alllll the paint and start from scratch.
There is a lesson in this, it’s either A) Listen to your brother, or B) Do it right the first time. Oh, heck can’t it both?!
ps. Matt how do you feel about helping me paint a rocking horse?! hehehe
