Did you know you can DIY your own Milk Glass?
Milk Glass is one of my favorite things to collect, when I spotted these Valspar Milk Glass spray paints, I could not wait to use them!
Super easy DIY Steps –
- Clean and dry your glass
- Take it outside – make sure the temperature is 65º – 90ºF
- Shake the can well and frequently
- Hold can 10″ – 12″ away from your project
- Apply thin coats.
- Re-coat within 1 hour or after 24 hours (be sure to follow this).
As always, be sure to follow the instructions on the spray can.
For my project I recycled several spaghetti sauce jars but you can spray paint anything. Sometimes I find glass containers at Goodwill or yard sales that would benefit from these beautiful colors.
These mason jars, aka spaghetti sauce jars make the perfect vase! I was able to create a vintage glass effect on my recycled jars in no time. I will be using them a lot and they were so affordable!
Thrifty Tip: All of my hydrangeas are doing great this year. I grabbed a few of the white oakleaf hydrangeas and they look cottage-y perfect in my faux milk glass.

Create a space for decorating your patio or deck, check out this recent idea that I shared. My DIY Repurposed Window <<- click, has been a great spot to decorate. I am treating it like a mantel, plus it makes the stairs to the deck look better.
I hope you’re inspired to recycle and refresh your space!
I love these easy projects! I can’t wait to try out these other Valspar colors: Jade, Marina and I used Antique White for this project.
