I have a rocking horse that my dad built for me when I was a child, and I don’t know how to incorporate it into my decor. It’s not too large, but it’s cumbersome and oddly shaped. My house is mainly thrift store, vintage-y, oooooh shiny, so it’s not completely out of place, but it has just been sitting in a bedroom corner for many years now.
Does any one have any good ideas for incorporating a rocking horse into your adult decor? I would, naturally, prefer not to drill holes or damage him in any way, as he is quite sentimental. Oh, and obviously he would be cute in a nursery, but I do not have kids, nor do I plan on having them any time soon. -Vera
Have you considered painting him a bright, funky color and using him as a piece of art? Kind of like this bright pink sheep.
Does he have a totally flat back on which to sit? Then you could put stoppers under his rocking bits, and turn him into a non-rocking side table.
Or maybe there’s a kid in your life that you could let borrow him, as long as they promise to give him back if you end up having a kid of your own.
Homies, what suggestions to you have for incorporating your childhood rocking horse into your grown-up decor?
