Saved from the thrift pile...

So, I told you here how I thought I might spray paint Mr. Rabbit orange for my front porch. I bought orange spray paint and got to sprayin!

Here is how Mr. Rabbit turned out...

Actually the photo makes him look better than he actually is! He was radioactive orange. He looked hideous on my front porch.

He sat around in the garage for a while and I took him out of the Goodwill box twice.

The other day (in between rain storms) I brought out my sweet little picnic table from the shop. My kids sat at this on the patio for many snacks when they were little. I adore it. It came from Target probably 9 years ago.

It now sits in my back yard... shabby and worn, just the way I like it! ;)

It looks lonely.
 A plant won't do because I forget to water it out there, no candle because it will melt in the sun.

So I though of Mr. Rabbit and how he had avoided the thrift store twice, he must have a place in my house. I had some leftover Valspar Yellow Creme spray paint and decided to give him another chance.

So radioactive Mr. Rabbit went through his transformation...

I used a black paint pen to give him some features.

Much better.

 What have you saved from the thrift pile lately?

  1. Aw! Much better! I have a whole box of stuff "to be paintedso I don't allow myself to buy any more!

    I've been relentless in getting rid of stuff lately- mostly clothes. I'm a clothes horse so it's really hard to admit I don't need a certain item!

    Have a great day! ♥
