Painted Glass Bottles


100_3623
These bottles look great painted on the inside!  Very easy, takes some time because it is done in steps, but very easy!  And I love how shiny they are on the outside!

I started out with two vases and an old bottle I paid a few dollars for at a thrift store (where else?)…

I used some left over paint I had (it is regular wall paint) and just poured it in.  I kept moving the bottle to distribute the paint as evenly as possible.  When the inside is all covered, I sat them upside down to let the extra paint drain out (the first one I didn’t do that step and it took a week to dry!).

Repeat as you desire!

I put mine in the window to let them dry, still took several days, but well worth the wait!

It was so pretty today I painted everything that I had been waiting for a pretty day for…if it held still, I painted it!

So smart to paint the inside... I tried the outside once and well that is why I only did it once:(

Jennifer @ Town and Country Living said...

Very cool! Hubby just unearthed a bunch of old bottles in a nearby field and brought them home. Now I know what I'm going to do with some of them. Thanks for the inspiration!

These are so pretty. I've been looking for some very pale glass accents but hadn't found the right color. Don't know why I hadn't thought about this! Thanks for linking up to Share the Love Wednesday at Very Merry Vintage Style!
