It was love at first sight when I found this milk can at a garage sale. I loved it so much that I stashed it in the garage for a year. I got stuck on questions like what color should I paint this should it go outside or inside? So I turned to Pinterest for a few milk can makeover ideas.
Oh, and if you are wondering where you can find a metal milk can I share a few ideas below?
MILK CAN MAKEOVER IDEAS FROM PINTEREST
So I turned to Pinterest to find milk can inspiration. I found 5 milk can makeover ideas and in the end created my own milk can. Do you want to take a look?
Milk Can Inspiration #1
I loved the paint color on this one. You can snag the vinyl decal at this Etsy shop.
Milk Can Inspiration #2
This black milk can looks so much better than mine (see above). You can snag personalized vinyl at this Etsy shop.
Milk Can Inspiration #3
I am not sure what I love more- this dairy graphic on the milk can or the girl (chick) behind Artsy Chicks Rule. If you visit her, please scroll to bottom to see my milk can makeover.
Milk Can Inspiration #4
Funny story with these vintage creamery cans. That was the description of these cans when I found this on Pinterest.
I guess Ma Ingalls would have called these metal cans creamery cans when she raised a family in the Little House on the Prairie.
I loved these creamery cans and then when I clicked on the link via Pinterest I discovered this was a photograph of creamery cans. Maybe I should order the print and skip the milk can makeover.
You can order a similar print I found on Etsy.
Milk Can Inspiration #5
Here is one more makeover idea. I love the greenery and the buffalo check ribbon.
