My upcycle is an old crate I had that I wanted to use as a tray. it had quite a bit of paint splattered on it. In fact when I bought if from an older gentlemen at the flea market, the look my hubby gave me! Well, he was a sweet old man and I have a soft spot when they are selling at a flea market I attribute that to my grandpa when I was younger. He was a junker before junking was cool and would sell his amazing junk at the local flea market. I remember most his line of old bottles all different colors. Cobalt blue, mint green, aqua they were all so beautiful to me even back then. So see its in my veins!!!
Sorry got off on a rabbit trail. Back to my old paint spattered crate.
I gave it a coat of milk paint, love this stuff it sands off in all the right places so easily.
Then I just started adding in what reminds me of Spring:
Vintage plant markers
Vintage bunnies that were my father in laws when he was a youngster (makes me sound old)
And greenery, a live plant in an old terra cotta pot.
Now to have some vintage seed packets would have made this amazing, but I don’t insert, sigh.
