This guy has been in the attic for a while. I've made a note to myself to go up in the attic and shop for the next several months of thrift store decor because the attic is getting quite steamy! 

It's a bit hard to tell in this photo due to the sun being so bright, but it's a dark charcoal color plus the dirt and grime.

Y'all…..it doesn't get much easier than a can of spray paint. Spray paint can give you instant makeover joy! It works on all sorts of accessories and surfaces.

After painting the horse with spray paint, I sealed it with a satin sealer with just a hint of shine.

  1. Well, the old version of the horse wasn’t much to look at, but, horsie gal that I am, after I put a base coat of white, I’d paint the darned thing – probably after my favorite horse from my youth…

  2. Your horse turned out really pretty. Much better than the before. Can you please give me specifics on the spray sealer you used.

  3. You’re so right! It doesn’t get any easier than spray paint! But what a difference it made in your horse statue.



I love hearing from you!
