Transforming an Ugly Bunny

    I found a cute bunny at GW for $1.99, however, it was all black and I sure didn't want black, but it was a great piece to try and recreate into something fun.

     Of course I forgot to take a picture before I started, however, you can imagine all black.  I sanded the piece lightly in some areas and heavy in others.   Then I sprayed the whole thing white.

    Next, out came my old standby of Min-Wax Walnut stain and I lighted coated then wiped off the entire piece.

    In the places where I lightly sanded, I was able to rub the paint and stain off, leaving some of the black showing for a shabby look.  I was able to wipe quite a bit off in various places all over the bunny.

    I love some of the black showing through in various areas.  Gives him more character.

    I am so thrilled that his nose and whiskers show up black and the tips of his ears.

    A fun project and I have a very unusual bunny.
