Bottle Makeover with WoodUBend

 I love old bottles! I have a collection of them in my kitchen window. And, I find it hard to throw away new ones. They may not be beautiful or unique like my vintage ones, but they can be! So, I like to give them a makeover.

When I finished this bottle of vinegar, I ran it through the dishwasher then painted it with one coat of the color Vintage Duck Egg from the Dixie Belle Paint Company.

Once the paint was dry, I added a piece of WoodUBend trim around the top of the bottle, & a flower to the center using E6000 glue. WoodUBend is flexible once you apply heat to it, so it can be wrapped around any shape. 
I painted over the bottle and the WoodUBend with another coat of Vintage Duck Egg.
Once the paint was dry, I covered the WoodUBend with Dixie Belle glaze in the color, Van Dyke Brown.
I put the glaze on heavy, then wiped it back with a damp rag.
When the glaze was dry, I rubbed on Dixie Belle Gilding Wax in the color Hammered Copper.

This bottle may not be old like the ones in my collection, but I think it's just as beautiful!
