It’s been awhile since momma taught ya how to make something beautiful, sounds like it’s time for a How-Toosday, amiright?
You know what I have a surplus of in my house? You are going to laugh, this comes as no surprise – booze bottles. That’s right, we drink our weight in sauce of all sorts at our house, and I always find myself cringing at the thought of getting rid of those bottles.
For example, Brian and I purchased an offensive amount of wine during our honeymoon. Each time we open a bottle, it’s sentimental and I have a hard time throwing those bottles out. (I know, packrat) But mainly, I look at some of the things we drink and think, that would be an epic vase. Some of Dad’s whiskey bottles, seriously cool looking. Alcoholic Chic, right?
Now, I decided I would just start hoarding these bottles and spray painting them in a monochromatic scheme, and then cluster them all over my bookshelf. You could do this in any color, paint them with patterns (ahem chevron) or even keep them their original color if you’d like, but they add interest to an otherwise unused space.
I also use them as cluster vases sometimes too, pretty much my house is littered in spray painted bottles…
- left over booze bottles - however many you've got
- dawn dish soap - 1/4 cup
- sharp knife - 1
- spray primer - 1 can
- spray paint of choice - I used black chalk board paint, matte grey, and matte white
- card board - for under the bottles
Hell hath no crafting fury like Whitney with a spray paint can.
