Beer Bottle Pretty: Who Knew?


My favorite projects are the ones that take used-up, every-day items and turn them into something new, pretty, and useful.  In this post, I've rounded up some of the most lovely beer bottle makeovers I could find.    Who knew that beer bottles could make such pretty decor?  I'm sure we've all been in that bachelor pad or frat house or guy friend's apartment that has been "decorated" with beer can towers and beer cardboard plastered on the walls as "wallpaper."  We're not taking that man-cavey route.  These beer bottle projects are seriously classy and seriously easy on the eyes.

I love this^ crystal-clear bottle as a simple vase.

This^ diy project is sooo cute! I'd like to use twine.  Or even ribbon!

Pretty lights like this^ would be perfect on a patio.

Oh! Hung from string on trees and accented with beautiful flowers.  Too lovely.
the colorful living project
Well, you know I can get down with a project that involves spray paint. ;)

the self life
Pretty white bottles in the window sill.  Love it.

I've been sipping on Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy and Shock Top Raspberry Wheat enough this summer to have a little stash of bottles saved up.  I think I'll be transforming them into pretty little projects like these.

Very pretty! But I'll do you one better: vintage coca cola bottles :)
