Free makeover, the Pottery Barn ceramic bunny look for less!
When I get a Pottery Barn catalog in the mail, it’s time for a cup of coffee and brainstorming session. I don’t think they ever come up with anything that I don’t love, well except the price.
I spotted a bunny and knew that I had a container just waiting for some spray paint:
Here she is before her makeover.
What do you think? $39.50 vs free
These kind of trinkets can be found at Goodwill all the time. Spray paint people, spray paint!
Have you refreshed anything lately?

So doggoned cute and free is best price ever. So smart of you to spray paint that little critter to outshine that fancy high priced bunny. To me is more fun to redo an item any time than spend way too much. Do you enjoy your re-thought items more than your store bought? I love it that I can outfox them.
Every time our daughter comes over she looks around our house to see what we’ve been redoing cause she knows we’re usually busy working on something or another, then she wants one too.
Wishing you a wonderful Spring and lovely Easter
Did you just use regular spray paint?
Hi Kimberly, I did!
Much, MUCH cuter than the Pottery Barn bunny! Darn, and I just gave an old ceramic bunny to Goodwill. It would have been perfect for this! Maybe I can go buy it back . . .
Oops – “please”!!!
Howcome I am the only one that doesn’t know!? Would you use matte or glossy finish on your bunny? Could you let me know the answer pease? Thanks!!!
Diane, you can use either. Pick whatever finish you love 🙂
Cute!! Haven’t spray painted in awhile!!
Do you have a specific paint that you like to use?
I have a bunny almost exactly yours before you painted it white. Mine is from Harry and David, which I got years ago. I was just thinking yesterday I was bore with it and now I know exactly what I am going t do. Spray paint it ! Thanks for the inspiration.
Yes! don’t you just love spray paint!
We loved your PB knockoff so much that we featured it in our Easter DIY Round Up! We couldn’t help, but share how cute and easy this idea is!
I thought that wooden one would be yours.
I thought it was stupid and am surprised at
myself that I scrolled any further.
Yours is so so cute! And, you’re right. Goodwill.
I like your bunny better!
Cuteness! Better than the PB version!
I’ve spray painted but had trouble with the paint bubbling on a shiny surface. Any tips?
This is dear!
I’m headed to The Goodwill tomorrow to see if I can find any bunnies!
Thanks for the idea
I hope you found something to spray paint 🙂
Oh my goodness, now I want to go thrifting!
You should 🙂
Oh what a difference a little paint makes!! Love it!! 🙂
Thanks! I hope you’re week is going great!
It’s amazing how much more “artistic” the bunny looks painted! Love it!
Ooooo, I love bunnies and this one is just charming (and much nicer than PB’s!) Your comment, “Spray paint, people, spray paint!” made me laugh … I can no longer look at home décor items without thinking, “Hmmm … I could spray paint that …” Thank you for posting such wonderful things on your blog; I just love it! Happy Spring! 🙂
What all are you going to spray paint Nancy 😉
Well, I just finished spraying a tulip shaped ceiling fan bulb cover and a clear dollar store plate with a second coat of frosting spray, and I’m going to use them to make a cake stand to display seasonal décor items. And I have a few terra cotta flower pots that I want to spruce up for spring. And by the time I finish doing those, I’m sure I’ll have a dozen other items lined up to be re-beautified. 🙂
Sounds awesome! Don’t you love pretty, inexpensive decor!
Your bunny’s new paint job is lovely. Actually looks nicer than PB version 😉
Way to go!!!
Thanks Paula and it’s a lot cheaper too!
Great makeover! I prefer yours to theirs.
Thanks Margaret 🙂
Cute, cute, cuteness!! I love the bunny makeover, and the photos and styling. So pretty!!
Thanks Shannon 🙂
Oh, this is darling! Love it against the black background.
First time on your site. You created a great vibe!!
This is so inspiring. I LOVE Spring decor, but not normally a huge fan of Easter-decor. This is completely adorable and I would definitely decorate with this little guy.
Brandi, I’ll trade you this bunny for those barn doors 😉
I prefere the free one better.
