Painted Bottles

**Post edit--
Hey friends!  
We are doing okay from the big storm.  No major problems in our area & very few power outages.  I pray for all of those who have been hit from Hurricane Sandy, that they will get the help that they need at this time.   

Today I thought I would share a fun, easy piece of decor that you could place virtually anywhere in your home.

Even though technically I didn't need a single new piece of decor for our new home, I decided it was time for some small changes.  I'd been holding on to these glass bottles for quite some time, just waiting to do something with them.  I decided to try out the whole 'bottle painting' craze. :)   Very easy, might I add.  I saw a great tutorial here.  All I did was pour paint into the jar & slowly move the paint all around until it covered the entire glass surface.  I used a wax piece of paper to dump the excess paint onto, and let the bottles dry.  By the way, I didn't want to let the extra paint go to waste, and decided to use it on the striped frames pictured in this post.   

After these cute little bottles were dry, I found a few places in our new space to display them. 
Small changes, but I love the unique look of them--and the pop of color is great to dress up any space! 

Thanks for stopping by!

I need to do this! The Dollar Store has a ton of bottles and I have a ton of Acrylic paint! I've seen it done with Mason Jars and don't know why I didn't think of this... thank you!!!
