What Would You Do Wednesday - Vintage Milk Cooler

When I was a little girl, we drank milk from glass bottles at school. A milkman delivered the bottles to the school in metal crates. That was after the days when a milkman also used to do home deliveries, lest you think I'm that old. But speaking of the days of deliveries, I found an old milk cooler in a pile of garbage my husband was hauling away for some neighbors. I snatched it up thinking I could do something with it.

This is the type of box you'd leave on your porch and the milkman would bring milk every day. In fact, I think it might be called a porch box. 
Now I need your help. What would you do with it? It has a styrofoam type liner inside and there is some rust inside the bottom, but I'm sure you can help me come up with some use for it. We have to, or else my husband will harass me to pieces about saving this thing from the trash.
 
 
 Leave your comments below and maybe I'll use one of your ideas and post it in a future blog entry. Check out the other stuff I snagged from that load of garbage. I know, it's a husband's nightmare, but I couldn't help myself. Watch for future posts showing what I plan to do with this stuff.

  1. I used to think milk deliveries were a thing of the past, too. But a friend of mine's parents get milk delivery daily.
