Dress up the bathroom: Make a soap dispenser from a liquor bottle

Plastic soap dispensers can get grungy, scratched and dented very quickly, which is why a glass dispenser is better. You can easily can wash glass, and it won't dent. In this tutorial, you will learn how to make a soap dispenser out of a liquor bottle. A clear bottle helps you know when to refill, but colored glass can add a decorative touch to a bathroom or kitchen.
If you don't have colored glass but want something to match a specific decor, use a different paint on the bottom and/or a different sticker and marker color for the label. For example, if the kitchen is black and white and you want to add color, paint the bottom yellow; the sticker can be white with red or yellow lettering. For an elegant look in the same room, use silver paint and marker instead of gold.
