Do you all remember when I got this little collection of ceramic animals a few weeks ago at a garage sale? When I saw these cute animals at the sale, I remembered a project done by LZ at The Summery Umbrella, and I just knew I had to use her method to give these little guys a new look.
I cleaned all the ceramics in hot water and soap, and let them dry.
Then I bought some spray paint in Heirloom White and went to town painting the deer and duck. I also had enough paint to cover the 4 rabbits that you can see in the first picture (I’m saving those bunnies for another project though).
It looked like maybe the duck and deer were kept outside as lawn ornaments, but now they are adorning my kitchen counter. This was a easy and quick (minus the drying time) project!! Not to mention cheap! 😉 Look how nice they look with a new coat of paint!
This deer and her baby are looking might proud.
The little pig just seems to fit with these other freshly painted animals.
This entire project cost me:
$3.86 for spray paint
25 cents for the duck
25 cents for the deer
55 cents for the 4 bunnies (I threw them in because I used the same can of spray paint on them)
50 cents for the pig (he was in the picture so I had to include him, lol)
Oh I forgot to mention that I also painted the Repurposed Light Fixture into a Birdfeeder with the same can of paint!! I got a lot of projects done with that one can of paint!! 😉
Grand Total: $5.41
Not too shabby for some cute little knick knacks that can now spruce up my home. I hope this inspires you to look at worn items with potential for a new look.
I appreciate you coming by today!!
