Fun with Finials

I found these little bunnies in a local shop.  I thought they would make perfect finials for my daughters antique bed, since it had a small metal post on each end that must have had something on it in the past.  I purchased small wooden balls at a craft shop and drilled holes in each end, one to fit on the post and the other to insert a small dowel.  I painted them and added the dots using the butt end of a pencil eraser (this keeps the dots all the same size). Once the dowel was glued and dried, I carefully drilled a hole in the bottom of the bunny the same size as the dowel.  The bunny fit perfectly onto the dowel and there you have it, a bit of whimsy to bring new life to an antique bed
