Soda Crate Flower Boxes

 
A few days ago,
a photo of some lovely painted soda crates were shared on Facebook.
Unfortunately, the original source of the photo was not included,
so I haven't shared it here.

The crates were labeled with
FLOWERS
HERBS
SEEDS
and were quite lovely.

The photo got me to thinking about my old soda crates.
The lettering had long gone,
but the frames were still quite in tact.

So with a little bit of oops paint,
some stencils,
and sanding,
I made some flower boxes for spring.




As you can see from the photo,
Old Man Winter doesn't think it's quite time for spring,
but I'm hoping he clears out early this year.






I'm ready for
