Home Decor using Vinyl

Good Morning.  I am so excited about this post.  I like shopping at yard sales and thrift stores for "old" items.  One day my neighbor was having a yard sale and I spotted this old metal milk can.  I decided to go over and take a look at it.  It definitely was not my taste in decor (you will see in a second) but I knew I could spruce it up a bit.  I bought it for $20 and started to ponder what I could do with it.

My idea, a vinyl monogram.  I have used Expressions Vinyl in the past for various craft projects and decided to make a monogram for the milk can. After much scrapping (many layers of paint on the can), repainted it in black and sealed it with a semi-glossy.  Then I used my Cricut Expression to create the monogram and to cut it out.  I am very happy with the look of the "new" milk can.

Oh, this project has made me want to craft with the vinyl even more. The possibilities are endless.  Thank you for letting me share my project with you.
