  3. You've turned a newly made rocking horse into a truly vintage looking piece, Lynn! It's a perfect accent piece in your all white room. I never seem to get past the fabric department in Hobby Lobby! Have a great weekend!

  5. Love the rocking horse that you found at Hobby Lobby...it looks great painted white. I have a horse that I got from Hobby Lobby several months ago...it is brown with white distressing. After seeing yours, I'm thinking I should paint it all white and then distress it.

  11. Gorgeous Lynn, he would not have been on sale if he looked like he did after you transformed him, he would have sold out immediately! You have a great eye for these things. ~Diane

  22. I was shocked when you said you got him at HL! So clever. You are the real "idea" lady! Looks fantastic! I have no room for something like this, but it would be so fun as a Christmas decoration. Love it!

  23. I can definitely do some serious damage to the budget at Hobby Lobby! It is one of the few retail chain stores that I actually shop at and find many things I J'Adore! Last visit I came away with a slew of those framed Chalkboard Style Art Sayings. Your Horse looks Lovely in your Home.

  24. Gotta love a white horse! (To go with your knight in shining armor.) As usual, you've taken something that is nice, but made it wonderful with your white paint treatment!

  25. Great find! You made him so chippy and beautiful!

  26. Oh my gosh Lynn, I hadn't been in Hobby Lobby for months and I was just there last week too. Came home with a chair with a patchwork and bird theme. I walked up and down the isles. Don't remember seeing this horse, but the transformation you gave it is fabulous! I love it! Perfect chippy shabby fellow!
    hugs,
