Review: Rust-oleum Painter's Touch Spray Paint, and DIY Project

Disclaimer: I received these items in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to post a positive review. These are my honest opinions. Your experience may differ.

I love to DIY. Though I don't exactly consider myself artistic, or really that talented, I do enjoy taking old things, and making them look new, and better than they did before. One of my favorite things to do, is paint old bottles, or ugly figurines one solid color. You can take anything and paint it a solid color and it takes on a whole new look. I decided to share with you a project that I was able to easily save half of the time I would normally spend on something like this, just because of one product- Rust-oleum Painter's Touch 2X Ultra Cover Paint and Primer.

I found an empty wine bottle sitting on my counter, and decided to revamp it a little bit. I love the look of groups of these together, when they are all painted, or even as an over sized bud vase.
You can use any old bottle for this, even an empty beer bottle.

First: Wash the bottle out, you don't want anything but a nice clean bottle on the inside. The last thing you want is your decor smelling like alcohol.

Second: Peel off as much of the labels as you can get off. This works better if you run the label under hot water. The sticky residue left over you can either try to clean off with a multi purpose cleaner, or use a product like, Goo Gone. I used Goo Gone. It's easier. You can pick some up at any local store.

Third: Now that the labels and sticky gunk is off from your bottle, wash the outside of it. You don't want any sort of oils stuck to the glass.

Last: Once the bottle is clean and dry, take it to a well ventilated area, and spray paint it. You want to hold the can 10-16 inches away from your bottle. Let your bottle dry completely.

Now, Usually I have to do 2-3 coats of spray paint to get the coverage I like on a bottle like this. I was so surprised once it was dry, and I picked it up, that I didn't even NEED a second coat! Seriously, if you have any kind of project you need paint for, this is totally worth the money. This is easily like having 2-3 cans of regular spray paint!

This Spray Paint also bonds to- Plastic, wood, metal and more!
