I found this on the side of the road.
Isn't she gorgeous!
I am going to fix her up for my baby's 3rd birthday next weekend.
She's quiet badly damaged though.
I usually love a fair bit of character but in this case it may be too much, keeping in mind that she will need to withstand some more pretty rough treatment as my boys are not particularly gentle.
She'll get a new Tail and Handle.
But here's the quandary
Do I completely re-paint her so she's pretty and new (but still keep the bumps and scratches of her history).
Or do I leave her as she is and just give her a good coat of lacquer.
Pretty and new (ish)
Shiny and old ?
