A Vintage Sled Found Some Love

I got this little sled at an auction...it was calling my name and I had to have it. It needed some love. Finally it has found a new life and will decorate my porch this Christmas.

    Nice job on the sled, it looks all refreshed and ready for some fun! Maybe add the ropes for the crossbar....:-)

    Like it exactly as it is with the red and wood. Ropes would add the additional nostaligic touch I think. I wouldn't decorate it with anything. You can use Christmas things if you want to gussy it up when the season comes.
