A House Decorated With 50,000 Beer Cans

Born and raised during The Great Depression, John Milkovisch had amassed a collection of beer cans, though that changed in 1968 as he finally used them to decorate his home in Houston, Texas.

He did so for the next 18 years before dying in the ’80s, with his wife, Mary contributing to the house’s look.

It is estimated that 50,000 cans were used to decorate this house, with each component of the beer can being put to creative use.

After Milkovisch’s wife died, The Orange Show Center for Visionary Art took over the house, preserving the house in all its glory.

It is now an attraction to both locals and tourists alike.
