Another glass bottle decoupage project


The best thing about decoupage is its affordability. I’ve got a nice large olive oil bottle. Of course it’s been long since I used up all the original oil from it, but I still use it for my plant oil in the kitchen. As you may read it here keeping your plant oil in a plastic bottle is not a good idea. So, I always pour it into the glass one after I open it up.

 

I have already once decoupaged this bottle, but it got oily and messy over a time. So, I just decided to redo it.

I’ve this new nice napkin flower pattern and I have already used it to decoupage my old cabinet. I cleaned the bottle. I did not remove the old paint layers from it. I just rubbed some sandpaper on it to help the new paint get better adjusted to the bottle. And I removed the old grease using window cleaning spray.

 

Then I repainted the bottle and decoupaged it all anew. Now it looks of refreshed and nice once again.

Cabinet decoupage tips


I have not been posting for a while. I did not have time to craft. However, I am back with few new projects done. The first one is cabinet decoupage.

Here is an old and ugly cabinet. Initially it was brown, but then repainted in white. Since I have to little kids, soon it turned ugly and dirty white. So, here is what I’ve done to it. I have repainted it putting several layers of white paint on. I decided to make a shabby chick out of it. So, after the last white coat of paint dried up, I have rubbed a wax candle on it. I laid the final coat of paint, decoupaged the cabinet and covered it with several layers of transparent polish.
