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.

  2. This turned out so lovely, Laura. I have a few milk cans and I painted one white to repurpose as a snowman during the holidays last year. I love how adding the fall garland warms it up for autumn! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm–pinned!
