I recently discovered milk glass, and I think a lot of people associate it with tacky grandma clutter. Luckily I never made that association so I have an unbiased view: milk glass is awesome. Granted some of the patterns are lame (white grape vines? no thanks), but I LOVE the hobnail design. It looks so modern in the right context.
I purchased a few vintage milk glass pieces from ebay, and they are perfect storage containers for my bathroom essentials. Bobby pins, makeup brushes, my contacts case, cotton balls, q-tips. We even have our toothbrushes in one!
I love how crisp they look against our soft gray bathroom walls.
