I always save my old wine bottles. For awhile, I did nothing with them and they just sat gathering dust.
Not one to have my home look like a Hoarder’s episode, I got on transforming them from plain old wine bottles to something decorative.
I’ve been on a re-imagining old things in my house kick so these bottles got a little dose of that inspiration.
Originally, I imagined them glossy and white.
Instead they ended up looking like this.
Streaky. Totally not the look I was after.
So I pulled out some leftover chalk paint from our TV console makeover and painted the exterior of the bottle.
What I ended up thrilled me to no end.
Even though we painted the TV console about a month ago, the paint was stored in a airtight container and only needed a bit of stirring before it was ready to go.
I plopped in some cheap grocery store carnations and now I have some pretty fabulous look alike pottery wine bottles.
Take a look at some of my other DIY projects:
