Vintage Christmas Sled

Vintage sled decorated for Christmas.


A few months ago we spotted a vintage sled in a garbage pile on the side of the road.  I have always loved the way they look, so we grabbed it, knowing we could do something with it.

Needless to say, it wasn’t very pretty.  I wiped it down well and then put one coat of dark stain on it.  When the stain was dry, I put on a coat of rub on poly urethane to protect it and make the color rich.
