Carousel Horse Stencils

Some time ago, Amanda at Keeping it Low Key shared the horsey themed decorations she made for her daughter's room, and that triggered fond memories for me of my childhood bedroom.

For my tenth birthday, I was allowed to redo my room, within certain allowable parameters. (I wanted blue walls; my mother wanted lavender; the walls were painted lavender.)

The best feature of the redecorating, without a doubt, was a series of custom carousel horse stencils that my aunt painstakingly created based on a coloring book I had. Every single one was unique. When I moved out and my bedroom was turned into the guest room, they were all painted over, but not before I took photos of every single one. Here are some of my favorites.


  1. Very cool! Ten year old me would have loved that :)

  2. These are fun! I know my girls would love something like that.


Thanks for commenting! It's great to hear from you.
