I have an antique milk can, I was using it on my deck to hold a flower-pot. I wanted to add some color to my deck and decided to paint the antique milk can. Here is what I started with.
I taped the top, handles, middle and bottom so these could stay black. I spray painted the body and upper section with Krylon paint.
I removed the tape once the paint was dry and painted the remaining parts with black.
I think it added a great pop of color.
