a wooden crate with a new bottom

November 8, 2011

This old crate was a great find by Nathan’s brother…well, it was really just the sides of an old crate. BUT, it was free.

We attached those two pieces of wood you see lay­ing in the back­ground. This worked very nicely for many months and ended up a a prop for a sev­eral photo shoots.….

But, I recently painted the back with left­over red paint– didn’t sand it or nothin. I did clean the crate…but that was about it. Now it is on top of my fridge hold­ing my tiny col­lec­tion of cook­books that I never use because of google {and because I don’t cook a lot}.

Yes, my plant is dying.

I like it on top of the fridge, but even­tu­ally would like to mount it on a wall for a lit­tle bookshelf.

I have some more fur­ni­ture being worked on too. All in due time.
