Pinterest Challenge- The Reveal

If you remember last Wednesday, I wrote about the Pinterest Challenge that was thrown down by the ladies behind Young House Love, Bower Power, Ana-White.com and House of Earnest


I love a challenge, and I love Pinterest, so I was SO in!

I had been pinning things like this:

 And this:
 And this:


I love the clean lines and the bright white. And a few weeks ago, I worked a lot of overtime hours, and therefore drank a lot of wine...

So I made the best of them and decided to spray paint them!

I wanted to leave the labels on because I liked the texture.

Then I whipped out my white spray paint and followed the cardinal rule of spray paint- "If the paint is a spraying, you hand better be a-swaying"  (ie- keep your hand moving)

After 4 thin and even coats, I was left with these babies


I think they could use another coat, but it's snowing outside.... So I will have to do that at another date. 

What do you think? What did you make? Comment with a link to your Pinterest Challenge blog!

  2. I've been pinning similar items too. Think these could be used as flower vases?

  3. Of course, Probably only one or 2 stems, but I think they would work great!

    What a great idea! I had no idea what to do with all of my wine bottles, but now I'm feeling inspired to get crafty! Thanks!
