When I picked up this little $3 ceramic Christmas horse at a local thrift store last week, I knew right away I wanted to try to recreate a beautiful European Farmhouse Christmas inspired piece!
This dated horse had great texture and the details were perfect for what I had in mind for transforming this little gem. With a price tag of only $3 I knew I needed to bring it back to the shoppe for a little makeover.
My secret weapon...Rub N’ Buff!
This stuff is so pigmented and magical when it comes to transforming something basic like this little horse into something super high end looking for your home. In this case, a base layer of black chalk paint and a light coat of this Antique Gold and I easily made my own piece of beautiful European Farmhouse Christmas decor.
I am absolutely obsessed with the outcome of this fun thrifty store makeover! These are the types of transformation that have me addicted to resourceful home decorating.
I styled it with a lovely dark red plaid Christmas sign, along with a grey wood bead garland for the perfect finishing touch to this beautiful vignette grouping.
