You know I love weathered, aged pieces.

And repurposed goods.

And the sense of accomplishment of a good ol’ diy.

And this little project combines them all…

I’m excited to share this diy pumpkin crate that is offered through the Home Depot’s upcoming DIH (do-it-herself) workshop.  I’ve teamed up with other bloggers to give you ideas of what you could do with this darling little diy build.

It started with cedar fence posts…

Which I treated with a mix of stain (in special walnut) and off white chalky paint to achieve a weathered look.

By rubbing some watered down chalky paint into the knots and grain of the cedar, I managed to achieve just the aged look I was going for.

And I couldn’t resist filling it with something unexpected: antique books.
