Wooden Bunny gets a Fusion Little Stork Paint Job

Take one rustic wood bunny shelf and add Fusion Mineral Paint  in little stork, a soft lavender color, distress the edges to keep the rustic feel and you have the perfect gift a little girls Grandma envisioned for her nursery. Adorable.

Apply 2 coats of little stock, lightly sand all edges, wipe with a bit of white wax and it is complete, ready to be wrapped with a cute little stuffy sitting on the shelf to put under the Christmas tree.
