Ahhhhhh I needed a craft for this month’s Old Fashioned Milk Paint post. For some reason, I’ve been coming up blank. Everything I touch has died an ugly death recently… I mean… it’s not going well. You ever have those weeks? Usually I just put my sewing machine, hammer, etc away for a while and find a good book to read. Well I needed a post by the 31st and on the 26th, I was wandering Goodwill looking for inspiration.
I found this.
The turning mechanism worked perfectly and the glass containers weren’t damaged at all. I left the glass to wash, and decided to paint the wood. My initial thought was that I’d use this for food, but I just struggled to think when I would use it.
Then I remembered the paint party that I’m hosting in a week! This would be PERFECT for holding paint.
… I know, it would also be perfect for holding food at the party. BUT PAINT! It’s nice to have a rotating item like this for everyone to share the colors at a table. I think it’d also be perfect for crafts with small items like beads or gems. I like the glass containers because they’re easy to clean out.

- Old Fashioned Milk Paint: Soldier Blue and Snow White
- Sander or sand paper
- Wet paper towel
- Paint brushes and a container to mix paint in
- Felt for bottom and hot glue gun
Next, I took some white OFMP to go over the top. I wanted a white wash look so I used more water in the mix than normal, and also wiped the piece down with a wet paper towel. This worked *fairly* well. It also made it chip more.
Let dry. Repeat process to clean up with the vacuum.
Use something to seal your piece. I used two or three layers of polyurethane.
