Milk Can Makeover


I found these two little milk jugs
and watering can while at a yard sale.
They were so cute I couldn't pass them up
and I knew they could be so much more.


So when I got home I dug around to see what I could find
to freshen up these little treasures.
I found this beautiful light blue spray paint
that needed to be used.


While I was at it I decided to also freshen up this teapot
 my mother-in-law gave to me.
It originally belonged to her mom and was used for making tea.
When it was passed along to me it had become a flower planter.


So they all got a coat of light blue paint
but I wasn't done with them.


I had some decals that I thought
would give them that finishing touch.


Butterflies and flowers - my favorite!


These two will show up in future posts.


As for the milk cans
they will feature my fresh flowers from the garden.


Right now they hold apple blossoms and lilacs!


What a beautiful fragrance as you come to our back door!
