Milk Can Table, Phase One

I shared the photo below on Facebook several weeks ago, smitten with the color and restoration.  I believe it was from Two Women and a Hoe.  Isn't it gorgeous?
But if you're like me, you admire many creations but don't tackle many as your own.
Well, after seeing my Facebook share, generous friend Bev gave me an antique milk can she had purchased.

I got to work soon after.

This is the can in its original glory.

Sprayed with primer

And here we have a red can as in the photo above.

Now, however, Rick needs to assist with completing the project.  He is a carpenter who can build just about anything, but I think he needs just a wee bit of reminding that the milk can is lonely without its table top.

Now you may ask what has all this got to do with donkeys.  Not a gol' darn thing.


  1. You're so funny. How lucky that someone gave you the can! It is looking beautiful. Hope you get the top soon.

  2. Looks fabulous, J! Just adore the red color!!
