Old Milk Can Makeover (Tutorial)

I never knew I loved an old milk can.

Until I found this one.

Pretty and kinda cool, huh?

Before…..not so much.

Although I do know some may love it just like this!

Do you remember it?? It was one of my ‘thrifty finds’ in this post here.
A little worse for wear but I had visions of what it could be….even if I didn’t know what they were when I bought it.

Now on to the tutorial…

Old Milk Can Makeover

First,  I lightly sanded any loose pieces of the chippy paint away.
Then applied a base coat of a latex I had mixed up from some sample containers I already had.
I wanted the underneath to be a teal color to match my kitchen where this was most likely going to end up.

I painted it with latex first because I wanted to seal up the underneath a bit.
I also wanted a layer of paint that would not wipe off with water.  (I’ll tell you why in a minute)

Next, I painted one coat of  Pure White Chalk Paintover the top of that.
I did one coat because I didn’t really want full coverage.

Here’s why I wanted the latex underneath…

After the top coat of chalk paint dried, I took a slightly wet paper towel and wiped the can down all around, “distressing” it.
I wanted only the white to come off and reveal the teal underneath.
This technique works wonderfully if you don’t want to go to the base material whether it’s wood or metal.

And is very easy!

You can also do it with all Chalk Paint but for this I really wanted more of a clean look without the metal showing through.

Next, I worked up some wording with different fonts on my computer and printed it all out.
(that’s another little sign project that was in the works in the background……
….I’m always working on several things at once! )

To transfer the image, I shaded the entire backside (where the print is) with a pencil.

You can see all kinds of ways to transfer graphics right here >>> How To Transfer Graphics

Then taped it to the milk can where I wanted it placed.

I took the same pencil and traced over the entire graphic…even the straight line.
The shading on the back transferred the image everywhere I traced.

Just like carbon paper.

Next comes the painting “in the lines” by hand…

It’s really not hard.
You don’t even have to be super careful because it will get distressed in the end.

Finished, but before distressing. (I used Graphite-Chalk Paint to do the graphics. As I’ve said before you can use any kind of paint for this)

A little distressing….or a lot. ;)

Up close…… I went back in with the white after painting in the black (and before distressing) to get those details on the letters.

I sealed it with a coat of Minwax Polycrylic in Satin.
I actually liked the way it looked unsealed but I really didn’t want to have to worry about splashes, stains and such.

Who knew this old milk can could end up like this?

This was originally going to the shop when I purchased (as are so many of the things I find) but it stayed with me.
(as many of them do!)

Old Milk Can Makeover TUTORIAL - #milkcan #paintedmilkcan

I am sure there are some of you out there that probably loved it as it was when I found it.
But it was a little too rustic and distressed for me.
It was the real thing…aged naturally. I just created a different style of aging that I love.

Even if it was not ‘natural’.

What do you think? Like it better before or after?

See you next week when I share this sideboard makeover!

UPDATE!!! You can see it now, here!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

12 Simple Ways To Turn An Old Milk Can Into A Gorgeous Accent Piece For The Outdoors

Old milk cans are some of the oddest and most unusual items used in interior and exterior design. At the same time, they’re really great at giving spaces that rustic or farmhouse look that really makes them feel authentic. With that in mind, let’s check out some of the different ways in which these things can be repurposed and used as decorations.

It’s not just any old milk can that would look good as a decoration. Ideally, you would be able to find one that looks weathered and has a rusty finish but in case you can’t find something exactly to your liking there are always ways to transform an old milk can. Check out on thenorthendloft the story of this milk can which can originally black and red but then became more plain, rusty and beat-up, just how it was meant to be.

Now let’s have a look at some of the cool projects that you can use your old milk cans for. One of the ideas is to turn it into a piece of furniture and one of the easiest options here is to make a milk can table. It’s a very simple thing to do since all that’s needed is to basically add a top and use the milk can as a base. you can have both pieces painted first so they match. Check out fussymonkeybiz for more details.

Not all milk cans are huge and big enough to repurpose into furniture. The smaller ones are better-suited as decorations and you can use them as vases. Check out this lovely centerpiece that we found on theroadtodomestication. It’s really charming and it’s basically nothing more than just a weathered milk can filled with sticks and some Christmas ornaments hanging around.

To make your vintage milk can look extra special you can also use stencils to paint something on it. It could be a nice welcome message, an image, a cute silhouette or anything else that you think would suit your decor. You can also fit a planter at the top just to add a bit of color and freshness to the design. The perfect source of inspiration can be found on thecreativemom.

Your decorations can change with the seasons and that means you can give your beautiful vintage milk can a makeover every once in a while and try out new ideas. For the winter season you could have a small Christmas tree placed inside the can and decorate it with some string lights and a few other things. This can stay outside on your porch to welcome guests in and add curb appeal to your cozy home. Check out chippingwithcharm for more inspiration and ideas.

Another cool idea is to turn an old milk can into an outdoor planter. It’s really simple and all you have to do is find some sort of container that would fit inside at the top, then fill it with soil and plants. We really love this combination featured on getcottage and the way the plants cascade down the milk can. If you love this look you can also try using other types of containers such as weathered watering cans for example.

As mentioned before, one of the easiest things you can do with an old and rusty milk can is transform it into an outdoor side table and look how charming this one is. The transformation is featured on adiamondinthestuff and, as you can see, all you need is a round piece of wood if you want to make something similar. The hardest part of course is getting your hands on one of those amazing milk cans.

Here’s another beautiful milk can that’s been turned into a side table and this one has a hole at the center of its top.

It’s a really clever and simple idea that you can put into practical right away. You can find additional details on thegirlinspired.

Another idea is to simply use the milk can as a decoration. You can add a few bits and pieces to it to make it nice and pretty and you can find a spot for it on your porch or in your garden or backyard, preferably in a protected area with a roof above it. Use materials such as burlap and raffia to decorate the can and add in some seasonal details as well. Check out gottahaveprojects for additional inspiration.

We love the weathered look of old milk cans but sometimes too much rust can ruin things. If that’s the case, a little bit of restoration work is needed before you can actually repurpose the can and turn it into a gorgeous new piece of furniture or a decoration for your front porch.

You can make an old milk can feel right at home on your patio even if you don’t really have any other similar items there.

Adding a few terracotta planters around it can sometimes help and a bit of contrast is always welcomed.
