Vintage Milk Can Restoration

How often do you see those beautiful vintage milk cans around and think you’d love to have one in your house?

All the time?

Me too!

A few weeks ago I finally broke down and purchased one. The milk can was in a state of disrepair, but it was the right price! My original goal was to restore it and keep it in the kitchen for dirty linens. After we brought it home I realized that this baby wasn’t going to open…at all. But that’s OK, plans change sometimes.

  1. I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to know where u got this from. cheers

  2. After I open up your Rss feed it seems to be a lot of junk, is the issue on my part?

  3. Did you brush paint or air spray the can?

    • I used spray paint. There’s a link above to the Rustoleum primer I used, and once that dried, I just used a silver spray.

  4. If my milk can Is painted already should I try to sand it off first before doing this ?

    • If the paint is chipping badly, you should remove the parts that are loose before painting. I would sand it down just to try and smooth it out after that. But, if the paint is in good condition I would just leave it.
