Jingle all the way


I'll step away from the Christmas tree posts for a minute to share a sleigh I found at Goodwill.


It was a bargain at .99 cents!


I just needed to get rid of the decoupaged image. It was cute, but I knew I could make the sleigh a bit better. The board was easy to remove. I just removed the four screws holding it to the frame.


I applied a coat of furniture stripper and the paper came right off.


Now that I had a clean slate, I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 to create a stencil.


I cut the stencil out of vinyl.


I removed the backing and adhered it to the board.


Two coats of paint later and some time to dry...


I sanded it a bit to distress it and then added a coat of poly. It is now ready to go to the Christmas open house today!

Whether my junk is from a garage sale, estate or farm auction, flea market or the side of the road, I love to find it, fix it, clean it, sell it or keep it. So come along the backroads of Indiana with Junk is My Life (me), let's find something vintage and do something cool with it! Formerly Junk Journal.
