I had seen out in blogland where wine bottles were sprayed with spray paint and some decorative bottles were sprayed then antiqued. And to be honest they never really interested me until I saw the bottle display that the guys in that house had! Ugh!
I got the best inspiration and instructions for how to spray the bottles here at Ruffled. Those colors really stand out!
For mine, I used spray paint colors that I had on hand already. I did spray prime the bottles first, just thought that would be "nicer" if you can make a painted bottle "nice".
Excuse the flowers, I just stuck artificial ones in to see how it might work.
I like the color of the blue one.
They add some height to a mantel display or vignette. I used a couple on my spring mantle.
They're not much to look at on their own. But when combined with other colors and maybe more items in a vignette they work better. They might be added to centerpieces for weddings or showers for inexpensive decor.
And certainly an improvement over "trophy" bottles!
