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.
But it could hold so many things… plants, pumpkins, flowers, fruit, and more. Be sure to check the links at the bottom of this post for more ideas on how to finish and fill this little pumpkin box.
