I don't know about you, but I just looooove the big ole' primitive white or whitish painted horses used in design! The patina of the chippy paint, the size ( I like using bigger pieces now rather than a lot of small ones) and just the nobility of a horse draw me to them.
I know I have seen some fabulous ones on some of your blogs, but I didn't keep the links. I can't even imagine the cost of one that is a true antique, but I love this reproduction from Restoration Hardware
and this one from Wisteria
but of course, they are still too pricey for me. So I did what I always do to scratch the itch of wanting a pricey piece-I found a cheap one and painted it.
It's about 12" tall, not quite as big as I would like, but it was cheap and solid wood. So after layer, and layer, and layer and layer of paint.....
I think it will do.....for now.
Now I am going to gallop on over to Kathleen's Faded Charm for a wonderful weekly perusal of White Wednesday posts.
