15 Minute Upcycled Whimsical Bunny Art: Thrift Store Challenge


Happy Monday, Friends! Today, I'm joining several blogger friends for a Thrift Store Challenge! If you're new here, welcome! I'm sharing a simple upcycle you can craft in 15 minutes.*

When I came across this dated art at the thrift store last week, I knew just how I wanted to use it.

It's the perfect size for this adorable bunny card Ginger Grand picked out for me from their family honeymoon in England.

Of course, the frame would need a simple upcycle. I started by removing the paper backing and art from the frame.

I received Vintage Effect Wash as a member of the DecoArt Blogger Outreach Program. See full disclosure here.


After wiping the frame's surface clean, I applied two coats of DecoArt vintage effect wash with a sponge applicator. After it dried, I used fine sandpaper to lightly distress the frame before adding the bunny art. (*The 15 minutes doesn't include paint drying time.)

My Thrift Store Addiction





Isn't he the cutest? I love the soft colors and the bunny's sweet face. Did you notice the little bee in the bottom corner?

I decided to display my whimsical bunny inside the white floral wreath I scored 75% off on clearance after Christmas. Since I already had the bunny art and paint, I only spent .25 on the frame!

  4. Ginger Grand will be so pleased you framed his card. That picture is so Eastery/springy. Among my errands this a.m., I needed a GW fix and came home with an impressionistic mother and 2 kids--right color tag. Will join my Monets in the bathroom! Gotta love art on the cheap!
