Upcycled Sled

by - 6:11 AM

I picked up this vintage sled at a garage sale over the summer for $2.  It's actually one of two that I scored over the summer.  I put the finishing touches on it yesterday and here it is ready for the holiday season.

I started by giving it a few coats of red paint.  The wood is so old that it soaked up the paint in seconds.  I lost count after 4-5 sprays. I let it dry for a few days.
The wood letters are from AC Moore.  I gave them a couple of coats of white acrylic paint before gluing them to the front.
This little touch of pine cones, leaves and berries is from Walmart. Yes, Walmart already has its holiday items out!
I can't wait to add this to our porch in December!  Cute story: this morning my 8 year old took a look at it, said he liked it and then promptly pointed out that it's not Christmas yet.  Out of the mouths of babes!
