Last month I received the following email about this old milk can I faux painted last year:
I was so thankful to find your blog post about up-cycling those old milk jugs. I was able to tackle that project this weekend. I am using these for my rustic style wedding and then afterward in my flower beds. I am sooooo thrilled with how they turned out and can't wait to see them with flowers in them. Thank you so much for your inspiration! I have attached before and after pics for you! :)
Here is Kenzie's before photo.
And this is Kenzie's after photo. Didn't she do a great job?
Just about the nicest thing that can happen to me as a blogger is to receive an email like Kenzie's telling me she was inspired by my blog post to try something new. And the frosting on the cake? Pictures!
Here's the background on my original milk can project post:
I received this old milk can last year from my husband (you can read about that here) and decided to try painting it. I was aiming for a rusty crusty finish.
And this is how it turned out.
I was really happy with it, and my milk can now sits next to my potting bench out in my garden. I was also happy to find out that a lot of other people want rusty crusty milk cans, and it's been a popular post.
I'm thrilled that Kenzie shared her idea for filling her old milk can with flowers at her rustic style wedding. I think it will be just charming, don't you? (You can also visit Kenzie's wedding blog here where I hope she'll post more photos of her milk can on her big day.)
Best wishes on your upcoming nuptials, Kenzie!
