Last summer I spotted a cute wooden rabbit at Goodwill and couldn’t resist buying him for just $.99. He’s been waiting seven months for a makeover and it’s finally happened. Keep reading because he’s got a new look!
It’s my guess that someone bought this at a craft show long ago or perhaps their husband made it for them and they grew tired of it. Nevertheless, it was donated to Goodwill and they kindly priced it reasonably. I don’t know about the Goodwill stores in your area, but the ones in mine have been pricing things much higher than they used to.
Mr. Rabbit first got sanded to smooth out his surface for painting. He then got two coats of Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in Primitive. To mimic white fur, I dry brushed him with Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in Everlasting. He then got a coat of cream wax for protection.
I haven’t started decorating for Easter, but after pulling out a nest, shredded book pages, and some eggs to use to take pictures for this post, I’m ready. Easter is one of my favorite holidays for decor!
If you are a Pinterest user, I would love it if you’d pin my rabbit makeover to Pinterest for others to discover.
Have you started decorating for Easter? It’s early this year!
