Reuse | Pill Bottle to Carry Little Things

no, don't throw it away! yeah reuse those pill bottles to carry little things
While I was cleaning up some drawers over the weekend, I've found some pill bottles, so ready to throw it away but decided to reuse it.

Just removed the labels and wash it clean.

Spray painted the caps with gold...uhm...okay why not glamorized this pill bottle right? ☺
Spray painted the bottles with white.

Finish it off with a clear coat spray paint on both the caps and the bottles.

Found some cute pink pink dotted ribbon to accessorize it a bit.

Please don't call me crazy for spending some time to make a pill bottle look cute when I can easily use it as is.

But don't you think these are super cute?!
But I like to carry around some cute stuff and pretty things in my purse ♥

So these bottles can carry your little things such as cotton buds, hair scrunchies & clips, bandaids, ear buds, etc.

Especially when you go out of town or overnight somewhere, these little cuties would definitely come in handy.

How can you not be thrilled with this right?♥
Well, what do you think?

    These are too cute. Been looking for ideas to use old rx bottles when GRANDbabies come over. Thank you

    How do you remove some of those "stubborn" labels? I've had some that I let soak over night to no avail. Not even with a nylon scrubby pad. The glue just smears around.

    Did you spray the inside of the bottles? How many coats of spray paint covered them? I’d like to try your idea .

    I use them to store flower seeds harvested in the fall and also to make little 'sharps' containers for the lancets used in checking blood sugar levels. When full i can then more safely dispose of them in the trash.
