The Holiday Sled

Lately I have been going to an auction on Tuesday nights.  They sell everything from glassware, to coins, to collectibles, to furniture.  There is a wide assortment of people who attend - some even have reserved seats!
 It is so easy to get caught up in the bidding - and can be very exciting!  I bought this old sled the other night and knew exactly what I could do with it:

 A little paint, a little MacKenzie-Childs Courtly Check "doodling" and this is how it turned out:

It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas, so I decorated the sled with holiday greens and a striped bow:

I also bought a few pieces of furniture to paint - so stay tuned to see how I transform them!

  1. Hi Patti,
    I love how you transformed the sled, it looks fabulous! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving your nice message!

  2. I bought a sled and am planning on decorating it for Christmas but I know mine won't be even close to as cute as yours is. I love the check, was it really difficult?

  3. Patti, I love it! I'm going to fill my checked wheelbarrow with Christmas greens. Can't wait!

  4. That came out beautifully! I passed up a vintage sled at a recent garage sale and now I'm kicking my self!


  5. Hi Patti! Oh, I love what you've done with the sled - it's darling! Honey, you're good! It will be so sweet at Christmas time. Heck, poke a pun'kin on it and use it for Halloween.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  6. This came out amazing! I'd love that at my front door. The perfect accent for winter and Christmas time. Patty

  7. O I need to find a sled Texas...yes we do on this idea

  8. Love it, Patti! But I'm sure you knew I would say that! : ) Our local antique mart has so many sleds. I remember looking in NY and not being able to find any {except for a baby one I found at a garage sale}.

  9. You have stolen my heart with this one. Wouldn't something like this look so cool next to my MC Christmas tree? Drooling!

  10. Pati, this is really great! I love it! I bet your house at Christmas is full of wonderful touches such as this sled...........Sarah

  11. Great idea, you must dream in black and white checks!
