Given that I probably lost any and all readers with the title alone, I feel like I need to put a disclaimer here and say that I love Pinterest. I am as addicted as any self-respecting crafter. This post is simply an example of a problem with using it…just…you’ll see.
While scouring on Pinterest a week or so ago, I stumbled across a great idea for upcycling wine bottles: take an empty bottle, paint it a fun color, paint a portion with chalkboard paint, and wrap some twine/string around the neck of the bottle. It looked really cool, and it looked easy. So I repinned it for something to do later.
I had a few bottles stacking up, so I decided to work on it this week. Since I had Monday off, it seemed like a great project to do while I watched some horror films. Easy! I grabbed a bottle, nabbed some of my favorite paint colors, and settled down at the coffee table to see what I could do.
