I don’t know about you, but I prefer glass bottles over plastic ones. Not only are they more durable, but they look a whole load nicer too. For that latter reason, they can actually be transformed into quite a few amazing things, and it’s worth it because glass bottles these days are rare (unless you count alcohol) and it’s nice to keep them and re-purpose them into something that’s both easy on the eye and highly useful.
So if you have any kind of glass bottle at home, go pick it up and get ready for these 13 ways to breathe new life into old glass bottles!
