DIY Gold Chevron Vase

It’s known to mankind (aka the husband) that I hoard unnecessary random objects. To me they are absolutely NOT unnecessary. My motto has always been “You NEVER know when you might need them!” and I’m still standing behind this ideology. In our relationship, I’m ALWAYS right.

For instance, I like to keep empty glass bottles. Even Fish Sauce bottles! Before you conclude that I’m crazy or side with the husband, hear me out. Fish sauce bottles are fairly unique (although they look like any other empty glass bottles, but that’s besides the point). The one I kept actually has this cool logo mark embedded on the glass!

Anyhow, I like to upcycle my glass bottles and use them as vases. I think it’s so chic to have a flower branch or some sort just chilling out  in one of these bottles. I usually have them lined up on my kitchen window sill.

Just recently, I decided to dress them up. I’ve been a huge fan of Chevron AND Gold and thought it would be neat to incorporate those obsessions onto my fish sauce bottle.

Here’s how it went down:

Hope you’ll try out this fabulous diy project.

Happy Friday!

  1. Hi Kellie, I know this post is a couple of weeks old now and I’ve already commented on it but I saw this nail design on Pinterest and immediately thought of you (hell-o! gold chevron!!) and wasn’t sure how else to send the link to you. Hope you enjoy: http://pinterest.com/pin/511017888938714845/ (and hopefully the link works!). Len

  2. Just stumbled upon your blog and I am so happy to have found this post! I work in the wine industry and use old bottles as vases, but now I have a way to spruce them up. Thank you so much for the lovely idea :)!

    What an amazing up-cycle project. Thanks for sharing! I’ll be certain to think twice before letting go of empty glass containers.

    Love this! Will definitely be trying and sharing on my blog!!! Keep up the great work!!

  6. Oh My… now you got me thinking about all kinds of things I could be doing with tape and spray paint and containers… thanks for the inspiration!!

  7. If you can do that with a plain old fish oil bottle, your husband has NO SAY in the matter. Just beautiful.

  8. My favourite part of this post is the “ta-da!” because it really reflects the playful attitude that you use to colour your life. In your eyes even the mundane fish sauce bottle is something beautiful with the potential to really shine – I love it!
