I Painted Our Wine Glasses

I’m still on DIY speed “slow-mo”.  Today is Week 9 of being sick.  Thankfully I’m on antibiotics finally, which are helping, but I’m still wicked tired and still have a low-grade sore throat by afternoon, which is making me wonder if this infection will ever go away… I was able to work a full day today, which is definitely an improvement over last week!

I had a helper for my project today.  Darwin the overlord/Halloween cat in his favorite spot inside the kitchen pot/pan cabinet above the counter:

This project was inspired by wine.  For the past few months I’ve been logging everything I consume into MyFitnessPal.  It’s really annoying to measure 1 cup of wine into a glass.  Or 1 cup of milk.  Or juice.  So I decided to paint a ring around the outside of my favorite wine glasses.  I used regular acrylic paint instead of glass paint, so I have no idea if the paint will wash off in the dishwasher [probably]:

But whatever.  It was a fun, easy project.  And if the paint washes off, I’ll redo them with a different color.  I chose orange for the first go-around because the inside of our glass cabinet is orange and we also have many orange kitchen doohickeys.

I grabbed my 6 wine glasses, carefully measured one cup of room-temperature water into them and gently painted a ring around the water line:

       

I let them dry upside down [after pouring the water out some of it started running down the outside of the glasses – gah!]:

        

Not too bad!  The color totally clashes with my favorite [chilled] Yellowtail Sangria, but who cares – it’s wine 🙂

  1. Get better! How frustrating for you to still be sick. I hope the nightmare ends soon. As for the glasses even glass paint washes off in the dishwasher; you would do best to hand wash them. It’s a cute idea.

  2. Glad you are improving, although slowly. You’ve been sick a long time, so take baby steps!

  3. Easy and fun project. As you said, if the color washes off, you can just try another.
