This is our bathroom:
See that blank spot by outlet on the wall? We needed to fix that. So I decided to paint some bottles. It was fun, easy and was totally the missing piece to our bathroom puzzle!
1. Took bottles with a nice shape like this one:
2. Remove labels, wash 'em out and dry 'em.
3. Use puff paint to do designs on the bottles, then let the paint dry for about 1-2 hours:
Big graphics, easily recognizable designs like flowers, hearts or swirls are best. For the holidays, snowmen, snowflakes and Christmas trees would be perfect! Make sure to get enough puff paint on the bottle. Thick dots will show up a lot better!
4. Spray paint the bottles. I did 2 coats, just to make sure I didn't miss a spot!
This bottle is the delicious Trader Joes Sparkling Pink Lemonade. It's my favorite drink. Of all time.
I did three different bottles of mixed shapes and sizes to provide variety and add more interest to the corner. If you're ever having trouble when setting up a corner, mantle, shelf etc.-- remember, always decorate (& flower arrange, for that matter) in vignettes of threes or fives...or any odd number, really. Three was perfect for this counter area. Just enough to cover the ugly duckling wall outlet. Actually, I take that statement back--I like the outlet, and need it really, for without it, I couldn't do my hair in the morning. And that's important, right?!
Then I got some beautiful Dahlia's from Trader Joes (while I was there to pick up more pink lemonade).
And...the final product!
I love this project because it's simple, fun, inexpensive ($5 for spray paint), could go anywhere, could be any color, and provides a lot of texture for any space!
Here is a post on how my bathroom went from a blast from the past (complete with wallpaper) to a modern, lovely space!
