This is absolutely gorgeous! I love bringing old utility items into the house and repurposing them and this milk can project is spot on. I love the look of the can painted white, it looks so clean and "shabby". I think that since I have a coffee table that I love, I would make it into a side table instead, by making the top smaller. I will be working on this project when spring comes!

I love the look. I was raised on a farm so it brings back happy memories. The only problem is trying to find a milk can here in Florida. The ones I saw are around $100. But I think I can make a pretty rustic table by using a smaller size wooden pickle barrel. Especially if I get the one I saw with the company name stamped on it. Same idea, same type genre but cheaper.
