I’ve seen painted bottles all over blog land and Pinterest. These soda bottles turned vases from The Colorful Living Project had me at hello.
I’m a big fan of repurposing/ recycling, and so as the weather has been prime for spray painting I made my own soda bottle vases.
I saved these glass Coke bottles from last summer’s 4th of July party. They were too cute to put in the recycling bin, and I’m really glad I saved them now! I decided to play around with some yellow spray paint. Yellow is such a fun, happy color!
I started with Valspar and ended with Krylon. I wasn’t crazy about that Valspar color; it was a little too school bus-ish. The Krylon yellow was a little more mustard-y, which is what I was going for here. I know they look like little mustard bottles and you all are thinking, “Where’s the ketchup?”. I thought the same thing, but once I brought them in they looked a lot less condiment-y. (Apparently I’m the new Webster.)
