This is the finished tall lemonade bottle.
My primed juice bottles.
I started to paint the small bottle with acrylic.
I finished it with 2 coats of polyurethane.
This is the other side of the lemonade bottle.

I didn't want to throw out some saved juice bottles so I thought I could paint them and now my 11 year old nephews are clamoring for their set of painted bottles.  I painted their names in graffiti and they just love them.   I can still fill them with juice and use them in a cooler or they are on display in my nephews' rooms.  I love painting and this is just one of my numerous recycle projects.  I've sold a few.

oldnews writes: Oh my gosh I LOVE these! I'd love one to use as my water bottle at work! Nothing worse that trying to figure out which one at the lunch table is yours, giving up and having to do without! Wouldn't happen with these! What a great idea! Very, very creative idea!
