Poor Man's Milk Glass

When I was a little girl, I remember going to my grandmother's house for holidays.  My granddad had a serious sweet tooth and so there were candy dishes in various rooms of the house.  A few of them were milk glass.  What is milk glass, you ask? Take a look.

I found this glass cutie at Goodwill and thought it would be a great piece to hold the TV remote but I didn't like the fact that it was clear.  So, how about adding some white spray paint and turning it into "milk glass".

So I got the newspapers out to protect my work area. 

I spray painted the top and sides of the piece.

When dried, I flipped it over and painted what I missed with the first coat.

Looks like milk glass to me!  

Hey, wait a minute.  Let's look at that first picture again.  I just may have made a true copy cat!

Gotta love Goodwill plus a little spray paint!
