a wooden crate with a new bottom

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.
