Painted wine bottles

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Painting ten wine bottles is quite a task, but I must say.... wiping, scraping and using rubbing alcohol to remove all the labels was the biggest pain!  ;)  My friend Monica (who must drink a lot - JUST KIDDING) had a really cute idea to paint some wine bottles. She mentioned a few of her family's favorite teams (Fyffe, Crossville, Alabama and Auburn) so I knew half of them would be sports-related. Then I gave her a few other "categories" we might be able to use to describe her beautiful family. 

(left to right) Husband's favorite hobby is golf, favorite family vacation spot is the beach,
the central bottle is a "W" for Westmoreland and a cross, daisies are Monica's flower
and her adorable son Will loves catching ladybugs and crickets

and of course Alabama - RTR - and Auburn - War Eagle

Hey Brittany! Sarah M. here from the 'SCO. I had to remove wine bottle labels for my wedding center pieces and we soaked them in a sink of Oxy Clean for 20 to 30 minutes and the labels came right off. That concludes my domestic tips for the day :) Hope things are well and I enjoy your blog!

Oh my gosh! Sarah you're a life saver! Thank you! Hope you and your family (meaning hubby and animals) are all doing well also! We miss you and that girl, Aden, so much!!!

These are really awesome! I love how creative you got with them. Using the bottles this way gives people a reason for collecting the bottles. Too bad I don't drink wine that much, but I have neighbors who have a great collection. I need to let them know about your talent!
