MakeOver Monday...Chocolate Bunny

I went looking for my Easter decor in the basement this past week and it was no where to be found. When we reorganized the basement last Fall, I went through it all and got rid of a lot of the junk, but I know I kept a few things, I just don't remember where I put them!

While I was down there, I found this ceramic bunny that I bought about 10 years ago(he used to have two friends, but they got broken over the years). I actually found him in the yard sale pile. I'm not into the ceramic animals anymore and thought he just didn't go with the rest of the house, he is more cottagey.

Then a lightbulb went off in my head.... make him a chocolate bunny!!!

I had no brown paint in the house. So I tried mixing some colors together to make it... didn't work. Ended up at the hardware store and found "chocolate candy brown", Perfect!!
I painted his eyes like a chocolate bunny....
He was too wide for the fireplace with the rest of my bunnies, so I set him on the table, and I think he might just stay there.
I also painted a small papermache bunny I have, but I forgot to take a picture of him. Of course I'm on a mission now to find more bunnies that I can convert :)

Have a Happy Monday,
