Repurposed Crown Royal Bottle

My husband loves some Crown Royal. It has always been his favorite drink. Me, I am a good ole country girl who loves a beer! So, with that being said, we have a lot of these bottles laying around. I just can’t bring myself to throw them away. The glass etching is so beautiful. It’s easy to repurpose a Crown Royal liquor bottle into a shabby chic piece of decor.

After repurposing the Crown Royal liquor bottle, I planned to use it in my bedroom, next to my wedding picture. With that being said, I wanted it to have a feminine, shabby chic look.

I gave the bottle a good cleaning with soap and water. I let the bottle soak overnight in water and dawn dish detergent. This allowed the labels to scrub right off using a pot scrubby. If that doesn’t work, spray Windex on the label and allow it to soak. It should scrub right off.

I poured out a little of the milk paint into a plastic container.

I applied to coats of paint to the Crown Royal bottle. Each coat took about an hour to completely dry.

After I applied the second coat of milk paint, I did not like the look. It looked, well, purple. I decided to apply some white paint to brighten it up a bit. Using a bristle brush, apply a very small amount of the white paint, then dab it on a paper towel to remove any excess paint. Then apply it to the bottle by using very light strokes. This gave it a shabby chic look!

I knew I wanted to bling it up a bit, so I searched through some of the old costume jewelry that I never wore. I found a pin which had purple tones. This would be perfect! I applied the cross with my hot glue gun onto the center of the bottle.

I also had an old gray beaded bracelet that went with a set that I had previously broken. I wrapped it around the bottom part of the opening. Lastly, I applied self-adhesive pearl embellishments around the top. You can find these at Hobby Lobby.

      I have seen people make a bench or one side side a 1 person sitting area then the other side leave the top drawer base for a table for lamp or drink & the 2nd/3rd drawer for pets or books

    Get idea 💡. My son-in-law loves Crown Royal also. I can get some bottles from him. I wanted to know if chalk paint could be used on the bottles?
