Chalk Painted Bottle

DIY Painted Bottle

1. Find an empty bottle that has interesting details in the glass.

2. Spray paint the bottle with a metallic paint & primer in one. I used Rust-Oleum's Universal Advanced Formula in an Oil Rubbed Bronze finish.

3. Brush on a coat of chalk paint. For this project, I tried the Waverly brand chalk paint, which can be found at WalMart. I have also used Annie Sloan chalk paint but it costs 3 times as much and for this small project, I don't think it is worth the extra expense.

4. Using a fine sanding block, remove a layer of the chalk paint, allowing the metallic finish to show through and showing off the details in the glass. Wipe off any excess dust with a dry paper towel or rag.

5. Using terry cloth or a lint free cloth, rub on a layer of wax. This seals the paint and gives your project a nice sheen.

6. Add embellishments. For this project I added self-adhesive jewels. For the projects shown below, I glued a metallic key hole to the smooth part of the glass and tied old-fashioned keys around the neck of one bottle and glued a metal flower to the other. In both cases, the metal was not the color that I wanted so I sprayed the pieces with the Rust-Oleum Universal Advanced Formula metallic paint & primer. But if these embellishments aren't your style, you can add an initial, silk flowers, ribbon, pearls, beads or whatever makes you happy!

Have fun and enjoy turning a piece of trash into a treasure!

My name is Jodie and I am a wife and mother of four. I love to bake, craft, travel, exercise, hike and explore new things. I'm excited to use the SHOTBOX to highlight my creations and to show you how this simple tool can bring light and life to your passions too.

The SHOTBOX is a collapsible tabletop studio that uses high powered LEDs to create a perfectly lit “micro-studio” environment. They are now taking pre-orders to be delivered for Christmas.
