Painted Glass Bottles – {Mad About Mint}

I love the shape and details of Seagrams bottles (no, I didn’t empty them), so I bring them home whenever I come across them.  Whenever I’m painting something, I always look around to see if there’s anything else I want to paint in the same color before I wash out my brushes and put the paint away.  I was painting coat racks with my homemade chalk-style paint and my eye landed on this pair of bottles that have been waiting for a beauty treatment.

I used my Silhouette (of course) to cut a few little stencils to add words where the label had previously been.  The label shape is different on the front and back sides – these are identical bottles.

I lightly sanded over the words and over the rest of the bottle so the raised details would be accented and to give them a worn look.  These words were very tiny, so the paint didn’t go on perfect, but I’m okay with that.

 I seriously need another room added to my house, solely so I can decorate with this mint color, because I’m in love with it, but don’t have another room I can use it in.

This set is available in my shop HERE.

Blessings,

Angie
