I love the colors of black and white together and those are the colors of my kitchen.  A few years back, Handsome and I changed our backsplash to a beautiful black granite and a white marble rectangle pattern, we fell in love with it from the moment we saw it and knew it had to be our black splash.  The counter tops are Absolute Black granite and my stove top is also black (yes, you could say I like black).  Lately, I have been wanting a pop of color in the area of the kitchen that the stove top is located.  Not knowing how exactly to achieve it, I thought I would keep searching until the right item just popped out at me.

Coke, diet coke, pepsi, sprite, dr. pepper, soda, pop

Who knew I would find the pop of color for my kitchen while I was shopping at Ralph’s {Kroger} Grocery Store?!?  Yes, Ralph’s!  I was walking down the soda aisle when I came upon a display of these unique Diet Coke 12oz glass bottles.  And then it hit me, exactly what my pop of color would be!  When Handsome and I first started dating we loved to go out to brunch, we would frequent one restaurant that would have glass Coca Cola bottles as their salt and pepper shakers and I always thought they were so cute.  With Diet Cokes unique design (no two bottles are alike) I knew this would be the pop of color I had been looking for and they would look great on my counter top!

So in my basket they went.  I picked 4 of my very favorite bottles, but with so many choices, it wasn’t easy!  Once I got home I couldn’t wait to begin.

My New Salt & Pepper Shakers 2 (1 of 1)

The first thing I did was pour myself a glass of Diet Coke.

 I love the refreshing taste!

Then I got started on making my salt and pepper shakers.

Here is how I did it:

My New Salt and Pepper Shakers

  1. Throughly clean and dry the bottles.
  2. Gently removed the bottle cap from the bottle making sure not to stretch out the cap, so it will snap back on tightly.
  3. Use any small item that you can place the bottle cap on to drill the holes.  I used the top to a sprinkler head.
  4. Place a piece of tape over the top of the bottle cap and mark where you want the holes to be.
  5. Drill the holes in each cap.  I put 4 on the salt and 3 on the pepper.
  6. Fill the bottles with salt and pepper using a funnel.
  7. Snap the caps back on to the bottles.
  8. Then proudly display your unique colorful new salt and pepper shakers!

** If you stretched out the cap when you removed it from the bottle and it doesn’t snap back on tightly, use a bit of hot glue around the outside top of the bottle to secure the cap back on.  It’s easy to remove the cap when you need to refill the bottles, then just repeat with the hot glue.

Coke, diet coke, pepsi, sprite, mountain dew, squirt, canada dry

Don’t they look great?  The perfect POP of color that area needed.
