Trash To Treasure
As they were packing up the Jeep, I wandered over to take a gander at what they were packing up. My father-in-law is quite the collector of fine liqueurs, and fine liqueurs tend to come in some pretty cool looking bottles. I swiped some bottles out of the box they were packing up. Don’t worry I gave my mother-in-law the 50 cents she would have got for returning them… wink, wink.
Anyways, there is a DIY that I have been wanting to do for a while now, and these bottles were perfect.
Keep reading to see how I turned old liquor bottles into chic liquor decanters.
-Old liquor bottles
-Fancy drawer pulls
-Paint (color of your choosing)
-E6000 glue (not pictured here)
** Just a little side note – I bought two clear glass drawer pulls from Home Depot. They were a little pricey. They were $5.88 each! But they were well worth it. The other three tops I had were crystal picks from the store that my mother and I own. We got these from a wholesale supplier. If you do this DIY, try and get really creative and see what you come up with for the decanter topper.

I understand your frustration with the labels, I refuse alot of glass jars and getting all the glue residue off is a pain UNTIL I started looking on line for help; found it. Just like sap from trees is difficult to get off your hands the same solution works for the labels; OIL. Any kind of coming oil. Gets all the glue off; just wash with hot soapy water after. Has saved me many frustrating hours. They look great, I have some neat old bottles I am going to try this on.
Thanks for sharing.
