I found this bunny statue at a garage sale for 75 cents. It was in pretty sad shape, but wasn't cracked or broken. I decided I would try a garden statue redo and see what I came up with!
I am not a big collector of garden statues, but thought this bunny would look cute among some of my plants. I have developed quite a love for spray paint lately and decided to try using this Rust-oleum Multicolored Textured Spray Paint.
The nice thing about this paint is that it is indoor/outdoor and can be used on a lot of different surfaces. This bunny statue is nice and heavy…some sort of hardy ceramic. I felt like this spray paint would provide a good coverage. I like that it is textured. It gives it a great look!
I just plopped the statue down on a piece of cardboard and sprayed light coats. I let the coats dry a little in between. I made sure to get all the nooks and crannies of the rabbit sprayed good. The above picture was taken when it was still wet. It took almost the whole can of spray paint to get the statue good and covered.
Here is the finished product:
This garden statue redo resulted in a bunny that looks like brand new! I was really impressed with this easy DIY bunny makeover! I think that the cost of the rabbit…plus the spray paint made for a pretty cheap yard decor item! I have seen some pretty expensive garden statues.
Have you tried to do any kind of garden statue redo? If so, how did it work?
