Don't cry over spilled (or rusted) old milk

Found this old metal container- in current beautiful color and thought I would turn it into a shabby chic trashcan. However the lid is rusted in place to the jug and I can't remove it. So, I stuffed it with some old artificial flowers and it's now just a show piece. However, it's still not functional and I was wondering if anyone else had uses for a rusted milk jug with a non-removable lid.
