I am a huge fan of spray paint. Always have been, always will be. Mostly because it’s such a quick and easy way to update an item. I found these vintage bottles on eBay. They came in a LOT of 8. I knew right away what I wanted to do with them, and it involved spray paint…shocker!
Matte black is so on trend right now. It looks modern, fresh and clean. I took each bottle and gave them one coat of matte black spray paint. The bottles that came with lids got one even coat from lid to bottom. That way when I’m not using it as a vase, I can use it as a cool piece on a shelf or table. After each bottle dried, I gave them one more coat. That will keep them from chipping easily. After they dried, i instantly had a modernized vase. Easy, right??
I used the new and improved vases for a dinner party. I wanted to keep the table simple and just use white and black. Between my white dishware and black vases, everything looked cool, calm and relaxed.
And what did I do with the bottles after the dinner party?? Displayed them all over the house! My favorite spot is on the mantle. I love fresh flowers in my house and this will keep my replenishing the vases.
