Easy Spring Decor – Painting and Distressing Glass Bottles with Heirloom Traditions Chalk Type Paint

In recent posts I’ve painted plastic, pleather and now glass. Want to add some pops of color to your home without the commitment? Have any old bottles laying around? I scored these for free at a yard sale. Crown Royal makes the prettiest bottles! I pulled the labels off, cleaned the sticky goo and took my paintbrush to them. I love how they turned out. You can use them in a bathroom, entry way, bedroom, grouped with flowers as a centerpiece. Weddings, Baby Showers, etc. Lots of options!

Thee Velvet Glove - Painting Glass BottlesThee Velvet Glove - Painting Glass BottlesI used Heirloom Traditions Chalk Type Paint in the colors Posh Pink, a Signature Color by White Lace Cottage, Sand (My favorite neutral), Begonia, Direct Green, Mandarin, Synergy, Vintiques Mint Julep, and sealed them all with Muddy Pond Spray Wax by Heirloom Traditions. I put two coats of paint on each bottle and distressed them with 220 grit sandpaper. Muddy Pond Wax is my go to. It adds just enough color to add dimension without making pastels look too dirty.

Below are a couple of short videos showing how easy it is:
