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!

Thank you for reading my blog!! It means a lot to me!

Shabby Chic Fleur De Lis Repurposed Tray

Take an ordinary tray bought at a thrift store and make it extraordinary. I needed a backdrop for one of my many iron fleur de lis home decor pieces. They are very heavy so I needed something substantial to put them on. This tray was perfect and the perfect size.

I spray painted it with Rustoleum 2x Paint and Primer in Heirloom White. Then I antiqued it using Valspar dark wax. I then sanded some of the paint off the edges and also added Antique Gold Rub n Buff to the edge of the tray and also to the fleur.

The piece de resistance was the little crown I added to fleur. I will try to sell this at our craft booth along with the easel. The easel matches so perfectly, that I didn’t want to separate the set.

It needed something special added so I added a CROWN.

HOPE YOU LIKE IT! Leave me a comment. If you have any ideas for my other iron fleur de lis let me know.
