I always buy any kind of box, crate or trunk that I come across. They are fun to re-purpose and so useful. It's even better if they come with a story! This was used in gold mining. There was a wooden tray with a grate that set down inside of this box for sifting. That was turned into a fun tray with a Farmer's Market stencil. I wanted to try a transfer using our new printer, so I went to www.thegraphicsfairy.com to find one. I settled on this graphic, which I reversed and applied. I had some problems with the transfer, so I left some of the paper on and applied some poly over it. I also used some maple gel stain to give it a nice patina. You could use it in so many different ways. Here I filled it with some bright yellow artificial flowers. It will be at the cabin on opening day!
