  1. They look great! I got inspired by Martha Stewart one time to do this and I took old jars and used two shades of the glass paint. Then used the mix matched jars on my counter as vases for fresh herbs for cooking. For some reason the blue of the glass paint really looked good to me with the green of the herbs. It was like a fresh flower display without the flowers.

  4. you are one step ahead of me. I have the bottles and the paint, but no execution. Part of me was a little hesitant because this project couldn't possibly be this easy right? I'm glad to see some real world application pictures. Great job!

  7. Well look at you go! My nighttime wild hairs usually involve me seeing how quickly I can consume a pack of cream cheese, so kudoooze m'lady, I think you have one this round.

  11. How gorgeous! I was trying to collect bottles in the proper colors to match my bedroom... how silly of me! I can just color them myself!

    Thank you so much for posting about this idea, I love it.

  13. That worked well! I have some really pretty teal paint that I could re-purpose for this. Idears are in my head.

  14. Oh, love this! I've spray painted the outside of bottles with matte paint and that worked well, too. But I think I like this even better (plus more color choices!).

  16. neat! i did something similar this weekend. spray painted the outside of bottles a gloss white- faux milk glass.
    how many coats did you use? how did you get the paint to be even?

    looks fab!

  21. I noticed on the original magazine page that they had flowers in some. What paint would you use that could take water? Oil based enamel maybe? Would glass paint allow you to use the jar for something else as well? So many questions....lol.
