TGI{DIY}Firday :: Milk It For All It’s Worth

October 7, 2011 § Leave a comment

I love this project so much! In the wedding business, you tend to accumulate a ton of vases. They all start to look the same after a while, so I wanted to change the vases up a bit. I found out it is super easy and cheap to recreate a vintage milk glass with the vases I already have. This project can be done with vases or any type of glass, but works best with a textured surface.

Here’s the look…


Textured glass

Glass cleaner

White Spray Paint (Krylon in Flat White)

Step 1:

Find the glass pieces you want to use. You might be surprised what you find. If you absolutely don’t have anything, you can always look at thrift stores.

Step 2:

Wipe down your glass with glass cleaner. Remove all dirt and dust. If there was a price tag or sticker, remove and wipe off the gummy residue.

Find a good place outdoors and put a tarp or plastic down. Spray carefully and evenly.

Step 3:

Let glasses completely dry overnight before you fill with water and flowers.

Step 4:

Enjoy your beautiful new milk glasses!
