DIY Chalkboard Milk Bottles
Today we'll be turning glass bottles into ingredient storage with just a few supplies! Here's what you'll need:
3 empty glass bottles (I'm using the Starbuck's Frappuccino ones), black acrylic paint, chalkboard finish for glass, a paintbrush, an oven, gold spray paint and sealer (optional).
First, remove any labels from packaging and wash the bottles. Take your paintbrush and whatever color paint you chose and paint where you would like your label to go. I wiped the area I was going to paint with alcohol beforehand just to make sure the area was clean. I wanted mine to have that messy paintstroke look and had to do a couple coats before it became opaque. I would recommend laying the bottles sideways while they're drying in between coats so the paint doesn't run.
Once you're happy with your acrylic paint layer, paint a layer of chalkboard paint over it. Remove the lids and preheat your oven to 325 degrees to bake the bottles for 30 minutes. Take them out of the oven to cool and spray sealer over the chalkboard layer. This step is optional, but as your containers are baking, spray paint the bottle caps (I chose gold) and spray with sealer once they are dry.
Remove your bottles from the oven and allow them to cool. Fill them with whatever your heart desires and label them accordingly. Finally, display them for everyone to see and enjoy!comments powered by Disqus
