Vintage Upcycled & Repurposed Child's Wood & Metal Sled as a Centerpiece or Wall Hanging

  • 742 Views
This sweet vintage child's sled was saved from the burn pile. With several runners broken, we decided to make them at least match. Runner length is about 24 inches long. The wood dimensions are 12 1/2 x 17. We matched the outside wood edges with 3 wood pieces from an old crate. After cleaning off the rust, we sanded the runners to make them a bit smoother. Then we applied 3 layers of concentrated honey pine stain to the wood. Then brushed on 2 layers of marine varnish over the wood and runners. This will help keep the runners from rusting and give the wood a nice sheen.
This cutie looks great as a centerpiece holding several large candles and surrounded by pine branches or just about anything you would like to use. Currently we have it on our vintage maple sideboard with my Delft lamp on top. This lamp is not included with this sled but will be for sale soon.Add some manila rope and, voila, you have a wall hanger.
