Hi vicki

I found this thread by doing a search for horse at the bottom of the trash to treasure page. It has a couple of beautys and I think some instructions. There are other links and some of the pics may be gone but some are still there.
Good luck and post a pic!

Here is a link that might be useful: Carousel horse thread

Hi! I have made 1 carousel horse and my sister has made 19! However, ours are only for indoors. I don't know how to post a picture and don't have time to search today. If I was going to do one for outdoors I would use Patio Paints and a good poly coat over that. If anyone can help me post a picture I can show some of ours. We fill the holes with joint compound, letting each coat dry and adding more, then use fine sandpaper to smooth. We also put them on poles and stands. Any questions I will be happy to answer if I can! Nancy
