I ended up selling the blue one without any stenciling.
But I loved how the stenciling enhanced the
vintage beauty of the white one.
Already sold, of course.
Here are some "after" group pictures.
I ended up doing two of the snowflake sleds.
The sled on the right was a vintage stencil.
This little sled was the only actual chalkboard
sled that I did this year.
And some more close-ups.
I purchased the "Bless This House" stencil at Hobby Lobby.
The border stencil was a Martha Stewart.
I think a mistake people make when decorating sleds is doing
a horizontal design (long ways on the sled).
People almost always decorate with the sled standing upright
so you should be able to read any writing without tipping your head..
A lacy all-over stencil on raw, aged wood.
The ornament stencils on this sled were done with the vintage
window snow stencils that I had ordered off of ebay.
Long story, but it took over three weeks for me to receive them.
I'm in love with the vintage stencils.
They were worth the wait.
