Y’all know I love and use my Homeright Finish max for 99% of all furniture projects. Heck I’ve even used it for walls, my front door, and even my birdbath. So, if you have a Finish Max, be sure to know that it’s not JUST for furniture redo’s, it’s perfect for painted glass bottles and knick knacks.
You may remember my repurposed drawer bookshelf from last month. I’ve been working really hard to stage my projects a little better. I knew that I wanted to stage that project with many white objects, most of them small trinkets. I hunted up a bunch of items from all my hiding places and took them outside to make them all match.
I mixed up a batch of my DIY chalky paint, so I would get good adhesion on all of my small objects.
It really was so quick and easy to paint all of these little pieces with my Finish Max.
See how cute they are now?
Here’s another great project I did with my Finish Max . . . These are my supplies. Wine bottles (and a couple of random jars) plus some Heirloom Traditions French Vanilla chalk type paint. Use the code MYREPURPOSEDLIFE to save 10% on your order (affiliate link)I used some rods of different sorts, some of them former crib parts to hold the bottles and jars while I painted them with my Finish Max. Here is the “after” of the bottles. The Finish Max and the Heirloom Traditions paint make a good pair. I love how smooth they turned out. Painting them upside down really gave good coverage all over. If I had set them on a tarp, I would have painted the bottoms by hand. I have to apologize, I don’t have pictures of the next steps. I couldn’t find them, and I honestly don’t know for sure if I took any. Here is one of the jars from the picture above.
Here is another jar-you may have noticed this one sitting on the repurposed sewing machine vanity, I had it holding some makeup brushes.
Good news! I have more bottles to paint! I’ve been collecting them from friends, I am not a wine drinker.
Quick tip: To remove labels, place wine bottle into pre-heated 350° oven for 10 minutes. Use a spatula to lift up one corner of the label, and it will easily peel off taking most of the adhesive with it. You may have just a smidgeon to wash off.
