I had these 2 bunnies which I am sure I bought secondhand. I am sure I didn’t pay more than a couple of dollars for them. The sticker on the back says they are from Big Lots and were $7.99 each. I used them a couple years as outside Easter decorations. While they are cute bunnies, I am thinking they are a little dated. Time for an upcycle.
With the Farmhouse style so popular, I decided to paint these puppies white, with some antiquing. My hip niece, along with her artistic husband, suggested painting the flowers grey to have them stand out. I thought this was a great idea as I thought the bunnies wouldn’t look right if they were just all white.
I already had an extra brush and some leftover white and blue paint. I mixed the white with the blue, so the blue would be very light.
For the antiquing, I rubbed off some of the paint with a wet rag; I also used some sand paper just a bit. Here’s my first attempt:
While I thought these looked okay, I couldn’t get Jackie and Alex’s suggestion to paint the flowers grey out of my mind. Then I remembered some extra black paint I had which I could mix with the white to make grey.
Here are the bunnies playing outside:
I did not spend a penny to give these bunnies an updated look. Just for fun, I searched online for white rabbit decor and found some priced $15 and up. I love doing stuff like this!
Happy Spring, and stay safe!
