DIY Milk Glass-ish Bottles

I saw this DIY project in the April issue of Canadian House & Home magazine but it wasn't until I saw it executed by blogger Emma of the delightful (new to me) blog The Marion House Book that I decided I was going to do it myself.

Here's the picture that accompanied the article in House & Home mag:


And as executed by Emma:

She chose to stick with one colour and I think it looks incredibly chic. Best part, all you need are some glass bottles/jars and paint. I have tons of jars I've saved up (from pasta sauce, jams, olive oil...) that I've been wondering what the heck to do with and now I know. Easy peasy.

Looking forward to getting this DIY crossed off my list this week today. Stay tuned.

Super easy steps for this diy here.

*Even if you don't use them for flowers, how great would they look grouped together and on display as a collection or a little vignette?

LOVE IT!!! That's such an easy DIY project and something that I never would have thought of on my own. I'm bookmarking this and someday I want a collection of these.

Very pretty indeed. I'm inclined towards flowers because, well, I love flowers. But the empty bottles make a nice, clean statement as well!

i would have never thought of this myself either. best thing is you can just use empty jam/sauce/oil bottles - whatever! i'm doing this project today or tomorrow - and will post my results :) i had left over bottles but went to my local thrift store and picked up some glass vases and jars (a TON) in various heights and shapes for 50 cents to $1. Can't be beat!
