From Plain Bottle to Antique-Looking Porcelain Milk Bottle

Today’s DIY is pretty darn simple, with pretty darn great results. Do you like the look of vintage-looking porcelain milk bottles, but don’t have the time or money to scour antique stores? Well thanks to the endless creativeness of papernstitch, you’re covered! All you need is a mason jar (or any nicely designed bottle/jar), a dropcloth and some KILZ original (white! Not gray!) primer.

Step 1: Turn the clean jar upside-down on the dropcloth in a well-ventilated area. I chose outside.

Step 2: In short bursts, spray primer onto glass. I stress the short bursts because as you can see in my 2nd photo, I sprayed it like I would with spray paint in long strokes, and it came out all pebbly and crumbled off when you touched it. So, once again, let me emphasize the shortness of the bursts!

Step 3: Once dry, feel free to use the jar as pen holder, flower/tree branch vase, craft tool wrangler, or anything of the sort!
