It’s Spring! I’m ready to put out all my bunnies (remember my all white ones from last year?). Last week, when I hit a couple thrift stores, I came across these bunny planters. I knew I needed these is my life. And at just $2 a piece, how could I say no?
At first I thought I’d paint them white to go with my other bunnies. Then after looking through my spray paint supply, I realized I was all out of white. I’m so glad I was, because I LOVE these gold and grey bunnies together.
And to keep these vintage bunnies modern and current, I filled them with gorgeous succulents from Grow in Cambria, CA. Succulents like good drainage and since these little planters don’t have any holes, I made sure to fill them with a good cactus soil mix. I’m hoping that if I don’t over water them, they’re been fine.
I gave one to my mother in law and sister in law for Easter. Now I’m got to hit the thrift stores again and find some more for my collection and to give as gifts.
These would be really cute painted pastel colors as well. I love a good thrift store find, it feels good to reuse something that could possibly end up in a landfill. And it’s fun to just re-imagine an object. Have you given any thrift store finds a facelift lately? I’d love to hear about your projects.
