This smokey brown apothecary type glass jar is perfect for a dramatic cotton ball holder.
Think outside the box when considering unique repurposing of vintage glass for example:
- use cordial glasses or juice glasses for q-tips
- use dessert dishes, compotes, champagne glasses or martini glasses or saucers as soap dishes.
- use sugar dishes or candy dishes for cotton balls or pads
- use mason jars for cotton balls, q-tips, barrettes or other small items
Give your bathroom a pop of colour with coloured vintage glass to match your towels or
tiles! You can mix and match colours too but keep them to a colour tone theme i.e. all pastels or jewel tonesIf you choose to re-purpose glass as a candle holder, it is important to not use tea lights with the metal cups. The metal cups will get too hot and may crack the glass.
To maintain the freshness of a clean, white bathroom, choose clear glass containers and jars and fill them with white cotton balls, cotton pads, candles, q-tips and soaps.
