Easter Bunny Centerpiece

Easter is around the corner. Want something different for your table?

Try this Easter Centerpiece I made for Old Time Pottery!

This Easter Centerpiece is a decoration that both the adults and children will enjoy. It is a twist with a little think outside the box action. I like using different objects to create with. 

While shopping at Old Time Pottery, I fell in love with a wire vase. I picked it up, placed it in my cart, and began thinking of a different way to use it. I love the texture and and twist of wire. I decided it would make a great bunny. This led to the Easter Centerpiece creation!

I started with a few supplies from Old Time Pottery

Painted Hutches

Painted hutches come in all styles and colors. The more creative you can get with paint and finishes the better. 
I like to add details. I replace glass sometimes with chicken wire, paint existing hardware, add fabric or paint images on the back. Doing this can take a boring outdated piece of furniture and bring it into a new more fashionable look.

I recently created another one for the store by doing some of the above.

I wanted to show you some of the ones I have done in the past and what I did to achieve the look. Click on the highlighted title below pictures to see how it was done.

French Farmhouse Hutch

This one I had a lot of work to do but it was so worth it!

My Favorite Things

Since the beginning of the year, I have been swamped with custom orders and furniture sales. I am not complaining by any means. This is what I love.
Though it leaves little time for anything else.

There are some many things I enjoy doing. I am lucky enough to do most of them. One of my favorite things to do is blog and unfortunately time has taken me away from doing it as often as I used to. I must have tons of content stored away I can share with you but days start early now and end too soon.

I am still trying to get into that groove again.

I am going to try a little series of My Favorite Things.

This way I can share with you my favorite pieces of furniture, new products or something that has inspired me.

I will start with a piece of furniture since that is something I truly enjoy. AND I didn't paint this one.

Are you ready?

This piece is original. I love so many qualities in this piece. First of all...
