Trying to find milk glass in my neck of the woods has proven to be a bit of a challenge. I just adore the 2 pieces that I have and would love to add to my collection. So when our Farmhouse Hens Blog Hop this month was all about Milk Glass I decided to see if I could try and make some of my own. Sharing how to make Faux Milk Glass with Thrifted Finds.

Supplies Needed:

  • Glass Wear from your local thrift shop – All of these goodies cost me $5 in total.
  • Rustoleum – Gloss White or if you’re in the US Valspar has a cool product out that actually gives the milk glass effect. Sadly not available in Australia so the Gloss shall have to do.
  • Disposable gloves
  • Newspaper

 

Step 1 – Clean your glass wear in hot soapy water to remove any grime and dirt. Let dry completely.

Step 2 – Depending on where the pattern on the glass is face the piece towards you so you can feel the texture. This still enables you to see all the pretty patterns once you have spayed them.

Step 3–  Give your spray can a good shake to ensure the paint is mixed well. Spray one coat ensuring that you do it in short strokes about 10 centimetres away from the glass. Leave for 20 minutes.

Step 4 – Once your first coat is dry, apply a second coat. I found that this was enough coverage.

  1. Unreal, these look great. I can see me using this throughout my home. All those horrible plastic garage sale vases. I am sure the seller would wonder what my excitement is about.

  2. Brilliant Sam. We can’t find milk glass here either – it must be a Southern Hemisphere thing 😉 and I really love the look of it. So glad you shared how to make your own. Pinning
