Saving bottles became a habit over my years of bartending… unique ones need to be kept and treasured. I began painting and using them at vases, olive oil containers and stash jars. And, they can simply be used as wicked decor around the house!
The Chicago back porch is a lot of fun to paint! Especially when I find a bottle with multiple flat sides, allowing the light to bounce and peek through. The above bottle with the beloved German Shepherd, RZA, was a unique 3-sided bottle with cork. Tall enough to hold pasta or incense sticks or just a pile of beach rocks!
Each bottle is hand-painted and one-of-a-kind.
