Crate: Welcome To My Home


Added a stencil to a wine crate. Since there was a large bag of Christmas faux flowers handy they got their chance to shine in a late afternoon photo along with a Christmas teddy bear.





The wine crate from summer thrifting plus 2 stencils (Funky Junk Interiors "Welcome To My Garden") and the "HOME" stencil I made using a Cricut are the basis for this project to make a Welcome to My Home stencil on the side of the crate.





Waxed with ASCP Clear Wax to seal the paint (and waxed the handles, sides and front.

I am using this crate as a container for Christmas themed table cloths in my booth at Village Antiques Mall.







Thanks for visiting today.
