DIY Champagne Gold Bunny

Thanks for sharing!

Sweet dollar store bunny didn't work for my look, but a simple faux finish quickly transforms them to fit my French Country look. 

DIY Champagne Gold Bunny

I absolutely love creating new, simple tablescapes for our dining room, kitchen, and outdoor spaces. 

I've created more in the last month for spring than I have in a while. 

They need not be a chore to create. Many can be created with decor that you already have around your home. Your tablescape can tell a story of sorts whether it be for Easter, maybe a game night, or even a book club dinner. 

Sometimes the challenging thing can be that extra touch to add to each placesetting.

This is when you hit the dollar store!

These little bunny statues were $1 at Dollar General. They are adorable and the perfect size to rest on each placesetting for a simple look.

The colors just didn't work with the other elements of the tablescape nor my more classic, vintage style.


This is where paint comes into play!

I had originally planned to spray paint the bunnies with this champagne gold spray paint, but it was just feasible with the weather conditions. 

I then turned to this gold paint that easily brushes on with soap and water clean up. It took no time to add 2 coats of paint to the bunnies.

It doesn't need to be perfect not completely cover the bunny.

For reference, my little bunnies are 3 inches tall. The ones that I linked are 5 inches tall.

As is, they were a little too gold for me with the weathered larger bunnies. I had this white wax on hand that I decided to roughly apply this for an aged look. It was the perfect thing. You could also lightly dry brush some white craft paint as well. I purchased my Annie Sloan white wax at a local shop. I did find this one on Amazon. It is not one that I have used before but looks similar.

What a difference! They are perfectly aged and no one would ever know that they started out as $1 from The Dollar General.
