Our front porch needed something. Yes it’s one of the first things you see of the house but to ‘decorate’ it just seemed like a low priority since we don’t necessarily use it every day. I did finally get some chairs and a table and it’s nice to sit out there. I still need to sit in the driveway most of the time because our garage is not ‘in’ the house so it blocks a lot of the view when JP is outside playing with the other kids.
My mom had this old milk can that was her aunt’s. Her aunt really used it for milk from the cows on the farm. My mom was just going to get rid of it because she just didn’t want it anymore so I said I’d take it and do something with it for the front porch.
This is the before, when you see the close up you can see all of the colors it’s been over the years.
I thought about getting a flowerpot that sits nicely in it so it had flowers but I’m afraid the drainage on the inside will just accelerate any rust that it has. I’d like this to last a long time so we’ll see.
