French Shabby Chic Bottle

Hi Everyone!

This was the second bottle art project that I made. I wanted a French Shabby Chic look this time around. The first bottle art project that I made was Old World Style and was painted Oil Rubbed Bronze in color. Read below about the colors I used for this one.

I bought this bottle at an antique store. I don’t think it is really “antique” but I loved the shape of it. I wanted a Vintage French Perfume look and feel to it. I spray painted it with Rustoleum 2x Paint and Primer in “Heirloom White”. It was a new can of paint so it kind of had some texture to it. But that was okay with me because it added to the vintage, grungy look.

I then added dark wax from Valspar. I love that wax because you rub or brush it on and then rub as much as you like off to get the tone you are looking for.

Then I added a necklace that I bought from Joann’s Fabrics. I also bought the key and flower pendant from there too. Buy items like this when they have their 50 off sales for their jewelry making supplies.

I bought the vintage perfume labels from Etsy. It was a downloadable print. I also have one on the backside, but I didn’t take a picture. I love that this bottle had a stopper already in it.

If you have any bottles or know someone who does, think about trying bottle art. It really comes out prettier than you think it would.

Creating and Crafting can be done many ways. I love this bottle media. You can search on Pinterest and find so many interesting ways to beautify what could become trash. I love Trash to Treasures!

Eek to Chic, Garage Sale Bottle Transformed into a Glorious Oil Rubbed Bronze Piece of Art

My first “bottle art” project. I found this treasure at a garage sale for only $2.00. It was a color somewhere between orange and gold. I loved that it came with a topper. I knew right away that it would be perfect for an eek to chic project. Read below for the type of paint I used.

Here is what the bottle looked like below. It wasn’t bad at all but it didn’t match what I had envisioned in my mind.
I loved the shape and design of this bottle PLUS it had a topper! How perfect for $2.00.

To make the oil rubbed bronze color, I used regular black craft paint and added some metallic copper and some metallic gold. I did not even prime the bottle first. But I probably should have. If I had primed it, I recommend the spray paint, Rustoleum 2x primer and paint. Then I used antique gold rub n buff to catch all the edges and raised portions of the design. I went ahead and glued the topper on with E6000 so I could put the necklace on without the topper always falling off.

Before I put the necklace on, I sealed the whole project with matte Mod Podge. I bought the necklace from my cousin who sells Paparazzi Jewelry. The gold in the necklace perfectly matched the gold rub n buff.

I really love how it turned out. I can always go back and add more bling. But for now, it is gold and GLORIOUS the way it is.

Go check out some thrift stores, garage sales, and flea markets to find some hidden treasures to make into one-of- a-kind, chic, precious projects.

Thank you for reading my blog!! I really appreciate it!
