I’m sure by now you guys are sick to death of seeing my bookshelves! But each time they end up in a post, I get comments and emails about the pink dipped bottles on the top shelf. Which always reminds me that I have a handful of DIY projects sitting on these shelves….that I’ve yet to post! And then I forget about them again.
So today I’ll share the one most asked about…the DIY Dipped Bottles!
I started with this random assortment of glass bottles, that I somehow collected over the years. Chances are, you have a few similar. I wanted them to have a uniform look in the bookcases, and be an accent for the room.
So I spray painted the top portion white and let it dry completely. Overnight is probably best. Then using painters tape, I covered the painted area and sprayed the bottom portion pink. I let that set a few minutes, then carefully peeled the tape off. Do this slowly so you don’t chip the white paint. I stood the bottles upside down overnight to fully dry before bringing them inside.
Granted the bottles don’t see a lot of action (or none), but I’ve had no problems with the paint staying on the glass. I rushed mine a bit so they turned out a little sloppy…that’s how they ended up on the top shelf.
Just another example of spraypaint transforming the plain to fabulous! And since I already owned the paint, this project cost me nada! Nunca. Nothing. Isn’t that the best kind of project?!
I’ll get busy writing about the other simple projects on the shelves. Do you have similar glass bottles? There are so many options for changing them up!
