More trash to treasures/ the bunny!

This (above) bunny was a gift from my mom and dad from YEARS ago. It's little paper mache body was stuffed in the back of the closet, all but completely forgotten. When I reworked the upstairs into the (now turned) art studio, I pulled her from her hiding place and covered the odd mustard yellow paper mache with white printed tissue paper. I color washed it with more white and lastly repainted the details  giving her pink eyes, nose and ears. 
Oh yea, she also got a great white feather boa!
I'm serious when I say this entire room was done in all old stuff, hand me downs and trash to treasures.
Still loving this space!
