Reuse | Pill Bottle to Carry Little Things


If you have not noticed yet or this is your first time here, I like to reuse or repurpose a lot.

While I was cleaning up some drawers over the weekend, I've found some pill bottles, so ready to throw it away but decided to reuse it.
Just removed the labels and wash it clean.

Spray painted the caps with gold...uhm...okay why not glamorized this pill bottle right? ☺
Spray painted the bottles with white.

Finish it off with a clear coat spray paint on both the caps and the bottles.

Found some cute pink pink dotted ribbon to accessorize it a bit.

Please don't call me crazy for spending some time to make a pill bottle look cute when I can easily use it as is.

But don't you think these are super cute?!
But I like to carry around some cute stuff and pretty things in my purse ♥

So these bottles can carry your little things such as cotton buds, hair scrunchies & clips, bandaids, ear buds, etc.  

Especially when you go out of town or overnight somewhere, these little cuties would definitely come in handy.

How can you not be thrilled with this right?♥
Well, what do you think?

  4. It would be great if there was an easy way to remove the labels! Once you find that out, let us know!

    1. Found that if you put very hot water inside them and let them sit.... that most of the labels will peel off easily. Glue residue is then easily removed with googone.

    4. With 30 years of working in a pharmacy, I have found it easier to use packing tape. If you wrap your bottle with thick layer of packing tape then take sharp edge of scissors to start pulling up the label. It should come off the rest of the way with no problem.

  5. There is a product called "Goo Gone". This will take the labels off easily. Just drop a few drops on labels to saturate them and leave for a couple minutes and they will peel right off.

  7. Too cute. So many things can be utilized that way. Just figure what you want to do or hide or contain and I bet you have something you can use right now. And there's so many ways to change things and embellish and so sweet looking. You can all do it. Use old pill organization cases too

  10. Crazy..but works! Larger hair color tops with dispersing "teeth" fit right down into pill bottles when I want to use a third of my color...always touching up my short hair. Just push until all color mixture is out. It works!
