Potato bin to planter

    So, apparently another before photo fail, I could have sworn I took one!  I got quite a few things at an estate sale a few weeks ago.  This had "taters and onions" painted on it and was probably from the 70's.    The top and lid were so tight that it didn't shut properly so I removed it.  I painted it in many layers of thick white chalk paint.  I got this sweet graphic from www.thegraphicsfairy.com and transferred it to the wood.  A couple of coats of poly and it is headed to the cabin at the market.  I plan to add a tray and a couple of plants to the top.
