Pottery Barn Cream Bottle Copycat

Yay for my first official post! I am really excited to share ideas and much more with all of you! Thank you for stopping by and showing your support!
While searching online, I came across Pottery Barn's New collection of Eclectic Vases. I think they are divine! I had recently bought a small bottle I found in the dollar section at Target(love that store) that I thought I could transform to "copycat" the one they offer. It turned out just as I envisioned!
Here is the bottle I bought...

I grabbed my bottle, paint and modpodge and got started!! I ended up mixing just a tad of a light brown with my cream paint til I got the color I was looking for.
After I painted a couple coats, I applied modpodge to the whole thing to give it a nice glossy finish! I love it.
Here is the Pottery Barn bottle...

And here is mine!...

After this, I thought I might wanna go darker. So I painted again and realized I liked the first look better. lol. No worries! Thats the joy of paint!!
What do you think?

I like the light color better too, but I would have liked the darker if I didn't have the two to compare. Fun stuff!

I love them both, but the light one goes better with your decor! You are so awesome to think of this!
