When I was a little girl I distinctly remember a life size bunny that my Nana would always have on the front porch at Easter time. When I grew up and had my own children, my Nana gave me that bunny! I have to admit, the last few years it’s been sitting in the back of the basement because I felt it just didn’t “fit” in with my Easter decor. So, this year I decided to change that and give this memorable bunny a makeover!
I started by covering him with a coat of Country Chic Paint in Cheesecake. I did two coats to cover the existing designs that were there. I love this paint and can’t wait to use it again! It coats wood so amazingly! I let the piece dry overnight. The next morning I grabbed a pencil and begin to trace out a new face and “welcome” sign. One thing I wish I would of payed more attention to was the detail of his face, because it was so cute before! But, I am happy with how it turned out! Next, I grabbed my acrylic paint in navy, black and pink and began to bring this bunny back to life! Lastly, I embellished his next with a sweet quatrafoil gray and white ribbon.
My kids just love it and that’s all that matters to me! We have enjoyed having the bunny on the porch this Easter, and will enjoy it for many more Easter’s to come!
