Old Bottles Redone......

Hi Everyone......It's Friday and I missed Thursday blogging, but here I am blogging on Friday!  Had some fun with some old bottles that my husband had probably found in some old barn and I thought that it would be fun to paint the outside and visit Graphic Fairy to print off some fun pictures.  Here is the before picture:

I really liked this bottle because the screw top was old and I liked the printing on the bottle.  I painted the bottle with aqua acrylic paint many times, with drying time in between the coats of paint.  I printed off a clock face from Graphic Fairy and just modge podged it onto the bottle.  I had torn the edges of the clock because I wanted an old worn look.  Once it had dried, I than antiqued it with cream paint and once that had dried, I dry brushed gold acrylic paint on top.  When I liked the look I sealed it with an acrylic sealer.

So what do you think?  I think it makes a cute colorful accent piece that would have otherwise been thrown away.....Until next time, Dianne..............
