Make Your Own Milk Glass with Spray Paint

Hi, friends!  Thank you for the love regarding my spring mantel.  I hope you had a chance to make your way through all the pretty spring mantels my blogging friends put together.  So many amazing ideas.  Many of you commented on my faux milk glass vases and I promised a tutorial on them, so today is your day.  You will never believe how easy this was with just one product~ spray paint!  I’ve always thought milk glass was so pretty whether it was white or a pretty jade green, it is one of my favorite things to collect.

The green milk glass often called, jadeite is definitely harder to find and much more expensive than its white counterpart.  Of course, that’s the one I like best, so when I found this milk glass spray paint, I was so ecstatic! I got it in the pretty pale green color, but they make it in a darker blue-green, pink, and white also. 

And with that, came one of the easiest projects ever!

    Did you paint the insides of the vases as well?

  2. […] Being my first and oh so special bloom, I cut it and brought it right in.  It is looking beautiful right in my entryway among a pretty little vignette. It looks especially cute in my faux milk glass vase.  You can see how to make your own milk glass, HERE LINK […]

    I am so excited about this project. I did not know of the spray paint. The woman of my family have milk glass from the depression and it is very scratched. I am glad I can now take clear items and make them look like the vintage I love.
    Thank you for this cute craft. Susan @ Craftingafamily.com

    I love how easy this is!! I’ve never tried this kind of spray paint, but I’ll be looking for it now!

  23. Randi says:

    Amy, I love this idea! My grandma had milk glass and I can remember it in a cabinet in her living room. I always thought it was so pretty!

    Pinning and using this tutorial in the near future, for sure!

    Randi 🙂
