What does International Delight have to do with it, you ask? Well, Adam and I have an addiction to coffee, and I prefer flavoured coffee, so needless to say, we have a pretty good stash of the empty bottles. I've been brainstorming for months about what to do with them, and the obvious answer would have been to just recycle them. But no. Not this girl.
It actually came to me when I lined them up on my table to look at them, and really, really brainstorm about what I should do with them. It seemed so obvious with them lined up in front of me. They look like they should be turned into bowling pins!
Looking like bowling pins, hey? I decided to embellish the pins a little with jute, and that's where I should have just stuck to using a simple sharpie pen.
Next thing I know, I'm creating nautical decor, not bowling pins! Oh, how easily my mind changes. I guess that is what I get for painting them colours like Lagoon and Galapagos Turquoise. It was inevitable.
This was a two in one project; one that can go either direction! Now, I just need to paint three more international delight bottles and use a Sharpie instead and Keenan will have his bowling pins to match our nautical decor.
