The top of the milk can becomes a table centerpiece and the bottom becomes a pail.

I cut the top off a old rusty painted milk can, ground it smooth, added a coat of polyurethane and it became a centerpiece. Ground the rim of the bottom smooth, added a funky handle, made from leftover vinyard wire and an old bale handle and I have a neat old pail.

I started making these for a friends Fall and Holiday sales last year, and she sold them as fast as I could make them. At the recent Flea Market Under Glass, she sold all I had made, by 3:00 the first afternoon!
