~thrifty thursday~{equestrian inspired}

 I bought this wood horse cutout at a flea market about a year ago for around $5.00.
I immediately painted over it because someone had painted silly white eyeballs 
on it among other things. 
I finally decided to do something with it, so here you go......
First up, I painted the horse again, both sides with chalkboard paint.
{the spray chalk paint works well too}
 Then off to the salvage yard I went and picked up 2 wood pieces 
{refer to the first picture} 
 and married them
 with my nail gun and some wood glue.
Wait for a sunny day, throw on some cream spray paint, and distress.
 4 eye hooks strategically placed......
and some black chain, and we have a double sided sign that would be so cute hanging from a barn or any room for that matter for a horse lover.
 I just have it propped up for taking the photos......

 And the other side.
Hoping this will inspire you to create something fun yourself!
xoxo
