I love containers. If they’re old, I love them even more. Suitcases, boxes, crates, jars, bowls. If it’s pretty, that’s one thing. But if you can use it, well then, I’m in love.
I have these bottles that I have been collecting. Starbucks frappuccino bottles, the kind that you can get from the grocery store. To me, they are totally reminiscent of old fashioned milk bottles. Our daughter loves drinking milk out of them. (She has an antiquarian’s heart.)
Regardless of how you are going to repurpose them, you’ll need to get them cleaned up first. The labels are simply a sticker. So, I usually peel the stickers off, run the bottles through the dishwasher, and then remove the gummy residue left over. I like to use Goo Gone to get the goop off. I have found that it really works better than anything else out there.
Once you have your bottles cleaned up, the possibilities are endless. Below I have put together just a few of the ideas that I have found on Pinterest.
