Milk can table

I decided to take this rusty milk can and turn it into a beautiful side table perfect for a country porch.  I sanded the rust down and spray painted it with rust-olium rust stopper. I painted the can using General Finishes antique white and added the milk farm transfer using liquitex and sealed it with Polyvine wax finish. I purchased a round slab of wood and sanded it smooth then painted it with General Finishes lamp black and sealed it with Polyvine wax finish.  I attached the wood to the milk can top by drilling holes in the metal top and into the wood.
