One day while browsing through an antique mall I spotted this canvas covered French wine bottle. Once I brought my purchase home I never really found a place to put it. Everywhere I placed the bottle it just looked a little boring to me so it has been tucked in a basket for several years. I always thought it would look better with some writing or numbers on it but I was afraid I might screw it up.
I made a pledge to myself on this post that I would not keep anything in our home that I did not love. At that time I can honestly say that I liked the bottle but it wasn’t love. I set out to change that.
Here is the Antique wine bottle before.
Country French Magazine
I used Word to type and print what I wanted on the bottle. A piece of carbon paper
was taped to the bottle and then the sheet with the printed words on top. Using a pen
I traced over the words to get an outline. The letters were then filled in with a black
Here’s the final result!
My bottle is smaller than the inspiration one so I used less words.
Now I am infatuated with the bottle and I think I may be falling in love
I also added the numbers to a $3.00 GW basket
My sweet friend Andrea of French Basketeer
and Metis Linens
knows I love everything French and especially hand blown wine bottles. She bought this wonderful clear bottle from her favorite antique dealer in Beaune and sent it to me. I was absolutely blown away by her generosity and kindness. I am so very touched by her gift…From the bottom of my heart Thank You
