Coastal Decor – Painted bottles in vignettes

  • 08/12/2013

Hope you had a awesome weekend!

I have been busy painting more bottles…arranging another vignette.

I bought this Hawaii decal on one of my trips to visit my son, daughter-in-law and grandsons. And it has been hidden in my desk drawer until I knew what I wanted to do with it.  The bottle is painted my favorite with acrylic black paint, white paint then distressed. The decal is applied and then sealed.

As a little girl my mother had me in art classes on Saturday mornings where I enjoyed painting and being creative.  Since that time I still love being creative as I have worked as a professional sign painter and later as a house painter plus graphic artist…so I’ve always enjoyed dabbling in paint including painting furniture.  I have drawn inspiration from lot’s of bottles, Mason Jars, tins, wood pieces and furniture on Pinterest, websites including Dream Factory, facebook and catalogs…and from Doc, my husband who has a PHD in Art Education.

With the bottle on it’s side this looks like it is pointing the way towards Hawaii!  I am so ready for another Hawaiian trip.

Coastal Vignette

This is one of my coastal vignettes…sitting atop my large jaccuzi tub in our master bath. I enjoy decorating with sand, shells and candles…just not too much of sand and shells. The large round glass container is filled with black sand, white sand, shells, rocks and a tall candle. There are two matching candles in frosted glass dishes.  Another glass jar contains bath salts I mixed together…the black and white mason jar on the left contains plain bath salts.  The soap dish is a large shell…it already had 4 holes in the bottom…so it easily drains out water from the soap getting wet.  And lastly…a soft bristle brush.  Great for scrubbing our backs.

The candles and large glass container I purchased at Pottery Barn a few years ago.

Thanks for stopping by.

I enjoy reading your comments.
