Painted Wine Bottles

I started collecting wine bottles last Summer in hopes of turning them into something purposeful…part of a centerpiece or tablescape. Day after day, google search after google search, I failed to find something to do with these bottles that sparked my interest. I probably have about 50 bottles thanks to family parties and holidays!

Finally, tonight, I found the following photos originally on this great blog, and then found their true source:

I think I want to paint our bottles! I would paint some a coral/tangerine-ish color, some a creamy white or pale yellow, and others (maybe?) silver…I’d put 3 bottles of differing heights on 8 or so tables, have a few lemons on the table and maybe a short vase with a sprig of white hydrangea, or a stem or two of coral peonies.

Stay tuned for some experimentation!

You find the best things when you aren’t looking!

Hey Kristina! Love the painted bottles and LOVE using them as candlestick holders! You (we/I would love to help:) can definately find cool things for tables w/out flowers. Did Trisha show you any of her containers? The pic I sent you had heart shaped flowers submerged in h2o! Very cool in red 4 Val day!
