It is Sunday - time for a quickie.
Bought nine at Riverfront Antique Mall last week for displays.
Gave them a distressed white look.
The crates are vegetable crates from Mexico.
The label said coriander was hauled in these.
To be honest some of the coriander did not make the trip in great condition.
Here's a photo of how the crates looked.
I did not include the rotted coriander inside.
Just in case someone has a weak stomach.
I take a wire brush to them and then lightly sand.
Here's one cleaned and ready for paint.
Tried to stretch the little left in my favorite white - Bermuda Sand, but, alas, one crate did not get painted.
Loaded them up to take the booth.
Had several offers to buy them, but I directed the customers to the back of the store where you can buy the rough ones for $3.
As I was going back and forth to get my Blazer fixed, I stopped at Something For Everyone.
This beauty was sitting out in the parking lot.
They bring estate sales to their warehouse. They have a huge sale coming.
They post pics on their FB page for you to see what's coming next. Check it out here: Something For Everyone
No, I did not buy the secretary.
Yes, I did buy something.
Because they do have something for everyone!
Hope everyone is warm and safe.
I stayed up all Friday night watching the gentle snowfall.
It covered the ground and then slowly disappeared.
