Antique Milk Can Umbrella Stand

DH had a great idea. He wanted to use an old milk can for our umbrella stand instead of buying an ordinary one. Thankfully my Mom's house is like an antique store and she had an extra one that she gave us. Here's what he did.

He took the milk can...

got a big pole and cut it to size.

Centered the pole in the middle of the can and filled it with pebbles to stabilize it. 

Once that was done he placed the umbrella in the stand.

Our oasis is now nice and shaded.
