Up-Cycled Soap Dispensers { Patron Bottles }

I have been taking Patron bottles home with me from work for some time now because I think they are just to pretty to through away! I started using the Patron bottles for vases and I gave several to my mom. The bottles look really nice in a grouping and I have a stock pile for decorating for others parties and such.

I got to thinking....what else can I do with these??

Soap Dispenser!

Now, you can see in the second photo my mini Patron bottle with nothing painted on it and it's cute but I wanted a little more "something" to them.
This one is SOLD!
Vintage Labels!!!

So I am now hand painting vintage inspired soap labels on the bottles.
It takes a VERY STEADY hand to paint glass and even more so doing lines and letters.

On to the PUMPS!! I am very pleased with the pumps I found online from One Dream Design. They offer
 several different styles and finishes.

The two that I liked most and bought are "bronze bird head" pictured above and the "modern heavy duty flat head bronze" pictured below.

The pumps arrived in 3 days, supper sturdy, and large enough to go well with the size of the liquor bottles!
A friend of mine custom ordered a Jagermeister and a mini Smirnoff bottle one and the pumps just simply screwed right on!
