Holiday Sled Makeover { A Thrifty Find }

Today I’m sharing my Holiday Sled Makeover with you.  A few weeks ago I was super lucky while shopping at one of my favorite stores {Goodwill}, I came across this decent sized decorative sled.  The lucky part…it wasn’t marked at a ridiculous price!  Score!  It was only $3.99, yeah you heard me!  $3.99!  Shut the front door!  So I snatched this cute thing right up and took it home with me.  
I knew it needed a little something to go along with my Christmas decor, the brownish red color of the wood wasn’t doing it for me.  So I decided on a quick and easy fix, spray paint.  I just took the wood off and primed it a bit, then sprayed it with white paint.  At first I was expecting it to coat nicely, which it did not!  The wood was stained and I being lazy didn’t feel it needed to be sanded before priming.  Which ironically actually made it better in the end.  I wanted it to be a shabby white, so I only had to lightly sand it to get that look since the spray paint didn’t coat evenly.  Score for me.  I love it, it’s a great additional to our Holiday decor.  The boys have even requested to go sledding, which I so quickly politely said no to.  So have you find any great finds this Holiday season that you’ve made over?
