Milk Can Makeover: Restoring an Antique Milk Can

This post is about how to restore an antique milk can. I enjoy finding something old and restoring it. Some of our favorite decor is antique items. It gives me an appreciation for how people lived life years ago.

I found this antique milk can in my Dad’s barn when he passed away. I thought about sanding and spray painting it but decided to have it powder-coated.

I made the Welcome lettering with my Cricut and tied a ribbon in it. Yes, I love burlap.

The milk can adorns our front porch and welcomes friends and family.
