MY DIY | Spray Painted Vase

Today I had a minute to spray paint my recyclables (inspiration here) and add a few flowers from the corner bodega, and ta-da! My apartment was instantly brightened!  To get the look: Grab a group of bottle (I left the labels on), take outside, and spray with a primer and paint in one, two coats, let dry and add flowers.

    Oh spray paint a DIY’s best companion. I love the simplicity of these, I will have to try something similar.

    1. I love these, too! Tried them a few months ago using a spray paint without a primer–a drippy mess! Any suggestions for ones that might work better? Is there a particular brand that’s best for glass?


    2. Try the primer and spray paint in one, and spray a couple thin coats on from 6-12 inches away from the bottle

  5. Oh I love these, I’m a fan of recycling things that I have lying about the house so this is perfect :).

    Do you have a go to brand or type of primer and paint? Whenever I go to the craft store, the choices are overwhelming and I never know which is best to use.

    You have awesome ideas!

    If you have time stop by the

    1. I used a rustoleum primer and spray paint in one, but can not seem to find it online. This should work though:

      Or look for the Krylon Primer and paint in one

    When I was moving into my dorm, in August, I had tons of bottles that I painted and made as jewellery holders and vases but the paint clumped up a lot cause I was too lazy to use spray paint (which is probably easier)! However, you can clearly see the difference with the spray paint and the regular paint! I’ll be moving into an apartment and I’ll be coming to your blog on a regular basis for DIY projects just like this! XX

  15. I love that you used mismatched bottles, especially ones of different heights–much more visually interesting than identical bottles!
