Makeover: Tuscan Dairy Union Vintage Milk Cans

Today, I sprayed two rescued vintage milk cans with RUST-OLEUM 2X Ultra Cover in Canyon Black (Satin).

I blogged about these milk containers over a year ago and finally got around to doing this quick makeover project.

I used a wire brush to scrape off the old paint and I also used a sanding block.

I covered the top of both milk cans with tin foil and I also used painter’s tape around the edge to protect from paint overspray.

Here’s the first milk can after three coats of RUST-OLEUM.

I plan on putting both cans in the house.

I’ll leave both rusty tops as is…

Voila! Two satin-finished vintage milk cans.

  1. I have two milk cans on my front porch. They are also painted black. I’m wondering why you didn’t paint the lids?

  2. Love these! You might want to clear coat the lids with polyurethane to save the patina. Just a suggestion though. Love your blog!
