HOPPY SPRING BARGAIN BUNNIES

Hope you enjoyed a great project filled weekend, or just spent time with friends and family. Although I didn't work on any major projects over the weekend, I did attempt a few DIY's and crafts last week. One of which was refreshing some thrifted bunnies I found two weeks ago - at a bargain of only $3 each. Now I'm not all into decorating every surface for Easter, but these made a simple addition to my existing Spring vignette on my buffet at our entrance...



This simple add was only $9.


I've seen similar white bunnies priced at $10 each at HomeGoods to $39 at Pottery Barn.

POVERELLO THRIFT - Wilton Manors
Ft. Lauderdale, FL
I spotted these hares mixed in with some other Easter goodies while checking our a (new to me) thrift shop up in Ft. Lauderdale. I felt like I had hit the Easter decor Lottery. I'm guessing a store must have donated their merchandise - more about that later - now, back to the bunnies...



Cute, but I left him there for another thrifter =)

He's so "hoppy"!!! =)

Minus the roses & bow and this bunny's got potential!


Brought them to their new home...

After cleaning them, took them outside to be primed & sprayed...


Priming helps even out the surface & existing colors
(so it doesn't fight the white)


So cute!

White satin spray gave a refreshed coat...


And I used a pillar holder to give height to the trio's composition.
 




The thrifted pedestal bowl (from back in Fall) did have green apples, which I switched out for some green grass (I found on clearance for $3 at West Elm after Christmas) and I added some simple dec eggs I picked up at HomeGoods back in February (pack of 16 hanging crackle eggs for $5)


The bunnies could also be painted in chocolate brown, heirloom white, or even with glitter - but I like the simplicity of the white...


A simple switch in chalk - from "A" to "O"...


Hoppy Spring & Thrifting!
Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Your little bunnies are too cute! And you're right about the benefits of priming first. I often get impatient, but it's really a good idea to prepare for the paint. Your vignette is lovely. I'm so glad spring is finally here!!
