Bunny Suitcase Footstool



I love rabbits. I have always thought one would make a sweet pet, but my Suki dog assures me this would not be a good idea. I tend to agree with her I think! So, I make do with my bunny projects. This one is a footstool! I adapted a Terrye French design on a suitcase that I had first painted a soft pink, stamped and antiqued. This was so much fun to do... I have made several suitcase footstools but I do believe this is my favorite. The bonus is all sorts of treasures can be stored inside. How's that for repurposing?

I love bunnies also. What a lovely footstool! I agree with you and your Suki: that a real live (for awhile) bunny is not a good idea.
