I’m one of those people with hundreds of DIY projects on my to-do list. You know, turn a cutting board into a side table, washi-tape my sofa legs, construct a hanging outdoor bar and ombre a dresser. Some of those are pretty big projects, and I live in an apartment without a proper place to paint, so I decided to start small this week with a project from our very own HGTV.com.

As the co-editor for HGTV.com’s Holiday House package, I’ve been swooning over the wine bottle candelabra project since it came in. I started storing my empty wine bottles, and once I had enough, I got to work with my spray paint.

As you can see, the wine bottle candelabras were constructed as dramatic entryway lighting at this year’s Holiday House. (That’s a lot of vino!) Since I don’t have an entryway, I took a different approach. See how my wine bottle candelabras turned out after the jump.

Ta-da! I spray painted five wine bottles of various shapes and sizes in a shiny metallic silver. Then, to make the candlesticks fit into the bottle mouths, I melted the bottom of the candlesticks down just a little all the way around. Once the candle wax drips down the bottles, they’ll look even better. For now, they’re sitting on my dining table with my hot-pink vintage busts and some ombre-painted pinecones.

Which HGTV.com projects have you tried recently? Did you add your own twist? Tell me below.
