What To Do With Old Milk Cans?


1. A Table Lamp

Etsy Shop Benclif Designs has amazingly rethinked an old milk can into a table lamp. The milk can is serving as the lamp base and for the lampshade they have used woven sea grass. This lamp is ideal for adding a touch of farmhouse feel to your home.

2. A House Number Display

Tamara at The Jolly James has given a nice coat of spray paint to an old and ugly milk can and then she has added a vinyl sticker for the house number. To make it even more exciting she has topped the milk can with a planter. Her front porch looks simply gorgeous with this milk can house number display. Two thumbs up Tamara!

3. A Cute Snowman

Though winter will bid adieu in a short time you can still relive this season of snow by making a snowman. Jane Windham of Cottage at the Crossroads has turned a milk can into a cute snowman. The interesting thing about this snowman is that it is painted red with the head of snowman coming out between the red milk can and the red lid cap. As if the snowman is dressed in a red jacket. ­čÖé
