Spray paint over a wine bottle & add the most elegant glow to your home

A soft glow is all it takes to turn a room in the home into a welcoming oasis of comfort and style. When it comes to creating a customized look to achieve this illuminated feeling, there’s no reason to break the bank. Skip the trip to the store and instead, turn a wine bottle into a beautiful lighted accessory in only a few simple steps.
Any wine bottle will do for this unique look as long as the label is completely removed. Spraying the bottom half of the bottle with frosted finish creates an opaque surface that allows a collection of small LED lights to shine through beautifully. Keep the lights inside by adding a rubber cork switch for an authentic final product that still references the original bottle. Set this glowing accessory on a shelf alongside similar lights in bottles of all shapes and sizes for an elegant touch to interior design.
