Chalk Painted Milk Bottle Vases and Galvanized Planter

 
 
 
The Milk Bottles and the Galvanized Planter
 
came from the Dollar Tree. I just wanted to change their look
 
by using chalk paint.
 
 
The planters have raised lettering and are printed the same on both
 
sides. You can choose between French or English.
 
Since they were $1.00 I bought both.


 
The bottles were also $1.00 and they have raised letting.
 
They are printed  -DAIRY MILK BY HERITAGE COMPANY SINCE 1810
 
 

      I find that the best way to paint these bottles is to start with a couple of fingers in the opening,

                                                        and paint with the other hand.
 
                                     I painted the outside and the inside of the planter.


                                                                               


After the paint dries, you can came back over the raised lettering with a lint free cloth dipped in warm

 water and gently wipe over the area that has the writing, but I prefer to use 150 or 200 grit sandpaper

                                        to take off some of the paint to give it an aged look.

                                   If you plan to use your planter and bottles around water,

                                     I recommend using a layer of wax to protect your paint.

                                                 

       The flowers came from the Dollar Tree.  I used 2 bunches of flowers and divided them into

                         the 3 bottles. You will need wire cutters to divide the flowers.
 
 
 
If you like you can add jute or some vintage lace to your bottles. 
 
 
 
 
I put one of the bottles in an old suitcase for display.
 
 
Here is the link for the painted suitcase
 
 
 
 
 
The planter with flowers would be a nice gift.
 
 
 
 
Thank you for stopping by !
