I found this ceramic bunny at the thrift store for $1 and I knew just how I wanted to upcycle him so he’d look like he was from Pottery Barn!
Here’s the thrift store bunny I purchased for $1. I washed him in soapy water him to get rid of the dust, oils, debris on him.
Once he was clean and dry I painted him with Folk Art Liquid Leaf in the color Brass, which I already had on hand. I mixed the paint up really well, painted on one coat, let it dry, and then painted on a second coat.
Once both coats were on, I let it dry completely. I loved the metallic look this paint gives.
I think he turned out great, and looks just like something I’d find at Pottery Barn (only for a lot less money)!
I also am thrilled that he’ll compliment the other thrift store bunny that I painted silver.
