Just wanted to show off my milk stand.  You should have seen DH's face when he saw the paint job...   Crazy

That is a great job.  It looks wonderful, and I LOVE the paint job as I am sure your girls will also.  Grin

  What a great idea, I have to say I have never seen one made from PVC pipe.  did you design it yourself?

Yes, I designed it.  I find PVC a wonderful material for construction.  I sell plans for the stand as well as a pre-cut kit here:  www.half-pinthomestead.com/FarmStuff

Very easy to clean and I can just repaint it when it stops washing up nicely.  I'm thinking sunflowers next.   Wink

Ok now...that is a beautiful stand..the girls will love it...however, what about the boys?  Boys need stands too..they need hoof trimmings and such, so where's the boys stand?  I'm thinking fire trucks, dump trucks and heavy chevy pickup trucks!!  Grin Grin

Absolutely beautiful!!

I only have the two girls.  But I definitely think the trucks, or maybe a race car for the boys!  Either that, or paint it black with flames like a hot-rod.  Living in town (two blocks from town square), a boy just doesn't work for me.

Here's my little setup:

  I was at a show I was judging Wednesday and I saw like 5 stands made of the PVC pipe and the white wire that you use in your closets.  It was the coolest and a LOT lighter.
