Good Sunday morning to all y'all.
I was able between drizzles to get one project painted.
To use as displays in the booths.
A dealer at Riverfront sells used vegetable crates.
Some are the full crates like the one on top here.
Others he adds a shelf in the middle like the bottom one.
I bought a mixture of both styles.
Now, folks, they are used which means vegetables have been shipped in them.
I try not to pick out an onion one for obvious reasons.
I clean and sand the vegetable and mold residue off each crate.
Compare the two in the photo.
Before and after.
A quick coat of plain old white paint.
I didn't bother with a second coat even though they soaked up the paint.
I wanted some of the wood to show through.
After being in the truck for two weeks, the crates are finally completed.
They are now in my booths holding merchandise.
Since I forgot to take a photo - twice! - I will show them in the driveway from a different point of view.
Come back tonight (Sunday) at 7PM Eastern for Make It Monday. Tamara, Mitzi and I have been so pleased with the creative projects, recipes, and wonderful thrifty finds you have shared. I was the lucky one to choose the features from last week. I narrowed it down to four, but it was hard!
