"Chocolate" Painted Terracotta Bunnies

They really DO look good enough to eat.
aw, shucks... I didn't win the 
Valspar Spray Paint Giveaway
over at DIY Showoff,
but did that stop me from going out
and "choc-la-ti-zing" me some bunnies???  
Nuh-uh. . .


And wouldn't you know it, when I did finally
get to Lowes, do you think they had ANY
of that Roasted Coffee color left? Nope.
Is it possible that EVERYBODY read 
the SAME BLOG POST at the SAME TIME and
RAN OUT and BOUGHT ALL of it??
Maybe so...of course, it might have something
to do with the fact that there's a dozen or more
Spring festivals going on now, and in the coming weeks, that are within a 100 mile radius of our locale... 
They look delicious just sitting there on my kitchen window sill.
so I just hopped on over to my friendly neighborhood Dollar General and bought their 
MIRACAL Premium in plain ol' brown,
and YES, it was indeed 
THE   LAST   CAN   ON   THE   SHELF.
A Before Pic 
$3 for both of these :)

$1 for ALL 3 of these 



I forgot to take a BEFORE pic of them

But I fixed'em right up! 
Now I'm wondering if I should paint
the paper mache I got for $1...

Now, YOU go Choc-la-tize YOU some critters :)

Happy Spray Painting, Y'all!

    1. Yes,and not only those you already have - but when you're out and about shopping, pay more attention to shape of items, instead of color. If you like it, then grab a can of whatever color spray paint and go for it :) I just love that spray paints have come a long way from eons past and can now be sprayed on glass, plastics, metals, just about anything :)

    1. Hee! you know, I had the same thought when I saw them at the DIY Showoff blog, because they do look so chocolate-y! Plus I'm gonna have to put them on a higher shelf for this coming Easter so my little granddaughter won't try to "eat" them :)
      Thanks so much for your comment and your visit!
