|With one spot left.|
|And here it is above our bar cart - a makeover is in the cards for the cart, eventually.|
I've tried a number of ways to remove the label, and find that it depends on the bottle and type of label for which method works best. Typically I fill the bottle with extremely hot tap water to at least the top of the label and let it sit for about 10 minutes. This helps to melt the glue/adhesive and makes it easier to peel away. Sometimes I use a razor blade to help pull the edges away, but usually they will come off pretty well after just letting the hot water sit for a little while. The adhesive stays pretty sticky, which makes it easy to attach the labels to cardstock for framing. I've taped the tops and bottoms of each card onto the white mat so they don't slide out of place.
I love this project, it's easy, but I love what it adds to our otherwise bare wall above the bar.
