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.

Let me know how it goes if you try it!
