Best Thrift Store Find.... EVER!! Edit: Final picture! It's done!
I paid $30 for this beauty, totally in working order, only cosmetically rusted (and the paint is peeling), and ready for my dad to sink it into the ground next to the nuggets playset! I can't even begin to tell you how fucking excited I am to strip this bitch down and make her all shiney and new again!
I know I'm a freak, and it is totally possible that I'm posting this in more then one group... I'm THAT excited! lol!
I don't even know where you would buy one of these new, I mean I've only seen them at the playground.
Has anyone else ever had the most amazing thrift store, garage sale, free on the curb find?
So we went from that to this...
I'm just waiting for the super
runny gold spray paint to dry and then I'll paint the eye and hooves.
Probably silver but maybe black. I wanted to do gold but it's way too
runny to paint on the bottom there.
Looks like a whole different horse!! I googled this particular horse on ebay and it's going for $676, I've spent a total of $66 on it total.
I don't think I want to paint the hooves. I like it one color like that. Anywho. I put eyes on it now. and it's ready to be clear coated and then put back on it's base. Then sunk into concrete in the yard as soon as the ground dries up a little. I'll throw a final final photo up here when I put it back together.
