Weekend Project



I saw this idea here that I thought was brilliant. Say you have a few empty bottles lying around that you've been meaning to recycle. Why not turn them into pretty vases that match your decor? All you do is pour a little of your perfect paint color into the bottle and swirl it around until it coats the inside. Dry, and you're done! What I love about this idea is that it's super easy - which means I'm more likely to actually do it. Can't wait to try this out.

What kind of paint?

The article doesn't specify, but I am assuming you could use just regular interior latex paint. I found a good how-to on Martha Stewart which says to use enamel paint:

Let me know how it goes if you try it!

What a cute idea. I might steal it when we move!
