Vintage, cottage, french and shabby chic meet Texas!
Behold, the vintage cottage horseshoe. Although western decor is not my style, I am a born and raised Texan and proud of it. So, I have these creamy white chippy authentic horseshoes hanging in my house. Some believe that a horseshoe hung above or beside a door, open-end facing up, catches and holds good luck. Others believe that a horseshoe hung above a door, open-end facing down, rains good luck on anyone who passes under it. We have a horseshoe hanging above both the front door and back door. Clean, new horseshoes and rusted, brown horseshoes are common but these white ones are more me. I did not paint them. This is they way I found them and they add just a little bit of Texas to my lil' ol' cottage.
These were $2.00 each for a total cost of $4.00. However, you can often get used ones for free. So for the cost of a can of spray paint, you could have one above your door for good luck.
Look closely and you can barely see it above our front door.
