I walked into my favorite thrift store the other day in search of a bunny. It's almost Easter and I'm ready to work on a cute Easter vignette. I'm tired of my old stuff, all pastel and everything. Not that I don't like that look but I'm looking for more of a "Pottery Barn" look this year.
I walked up and down the isles, turned the corner and... there she was, sitting on the top shelf looking all 80's with her little peach flowers. I know because I used to have this peach kind of stuff years ago...yuck!
I grabbed her up for a whopping $1.99 (not on sale)! I couldn't wait to rip off those peach flowers. They came off pretty easily, but I can't say the same for the glob of hot glue that someone used to stick them on! They obviously didn't anticipate someone coming along and removing them.
She got several coats of Krylon Ivory spray paint. Here's what she looked like after that.
A huge improvement, but still not quite finished.
I painted on my favorite glaze. I like to use a small brush like I showed you here to get into the creases better. Then I took a paper towel and wiped it down. It's important to do this just a section at a time because it dries pretty quickly. I like how the glaze highlights the details in her little face!
Here she is all finished! A super, duper, easy makeover. I wish that all makeovers were that simple, but that's a whole different subject!
I have a fun plan in mind to display this little girl bunny. When I get that finished up, I'll show you where I'm making her home until after Easter!
