More about my Vintage Sleds

One day last summer my daughter walked
up to the house pulling a sled...

I've taught them well... picking out 
of the garbage is not always a bad thing.

As you may have seen already, 
this Christmas sled is decorating our mantel...

Did you see it yesterday in the Junkers United Showcase?

I used Old White Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and a stencil
and brought new life to this vintage sled.

I painted only the center boards, leaving all the old rusty,
vintage metal and red sideboards in their original condition.

A beautiful family heirloom for years to come.


Another treasured vintage sled is decorating our
front door this holiday season...


I painted this 5' sled red then distressed the edges.

I'm using a string of rusty bells and the house
number I purchased at Decor Steals to decorate the sled.


If you love old sleds and vintage junk like I do 
then please check out my Junkers United post where I used the white sled on my mantel to create a vintage holiday scene!


And don't forget to link up to the Junkers United Link Party!

  3. I love how you dressed up your sleds! I picked up a couple over the summer. One I left as is and the other I painted red which was really out of character for me. It's on my porch.
