Funked up Ceramics in Neon Yellow

 
A Thrift find- Ceramic jugs
I found these great ceramic jugs whilst on a little thrifting expedition with my friend Sophie of Cirque Du Bebe fame (one of the cutest sewing blogs around so do check it out!). I love ceramics and I do see that these jugs are quite beautiful just as they are. However I had already introduced a snippet of yellow into our open plan dining area, see my garland post from last week and I was really keen to layer that yellow theme some more. So I thought here is a little opportunity for some up-cycling and perhaps this may even be one of those "funk up your junk" moments as design experts are now calling it ;-)

Painted Fish Sauce bottle

Now before I go a quick word if I may about fish sauce bottles. Glass fish sauce bottles have the most gorgeous glass detailing as far "non-vintage bottles" go and are perfect for inside tinting/ painting. The neon ceramic marker worked best on the outside of its glass rim too. I am quite happy with the result and I definitely love going all yellow on you...
