Re-Purposed Bottle

Good day, friends, and welcome to Leisure Lane.  I hope you are all doing well today.

Here is another project I promised to share with you. A bottle I repainted and re-purposed. It turned out so pretty.  It was a black glazed bottle which I primed and painted with an undercoat of brown paint; added crackle medium and painted an overcoat of a lovely sea mist color. I was nervous about painting the bird and flowers, but I took the leap of faith and did it. Then I lightly distressed it. I haven’t painted like this in about a decade. I am so pleased with how it turned out.

I decoupaged the sides of this lovely hexagon shaped bottle with some musical notes.


Painted some buds on the back,


and added a charming watch face I found at a local thrift store to the top.

I hope you’ve been inspired and you’ve enjoyed your visit.  I will share some more soon. So…

Until next time, may happy days abound!

Marianne ♥
