While on a recent antiquing trip with my Mom for her birthday (Happy Birthday Mom!) she bought me (yes I know, her birthday and she buys me crap.. Mothers *sigh*) a super old, super heavy, super delicious milk crate. I'm in.love.with.it.
*My friend Sandra informed me that there's a similar post like this at Cap Creations! It's not the exact one I saw, but very close-- and super cute too!
So, here's what I did. I looked up a font that was oldish--scriptish--and easy enough for me to free hand. It wasn't going to be perfect and I'm okay with that. Then I painted it on and scuffed it up. The number is our anniversary date by the way. I love it!
And, for the crate-- it's not deep enough to hold anything thick and lovely like a gorgeous cream blanket I had in mind but it's perfect for a healthy amount of magazines. I could fill it all the way up and it might just drive my husband crazy-- I'm a pottery barn magazine hoarder, I know this. :)
Anything you added your personal touch to? Even if it was an antique and took all the value away? But added infinite value in your home? :)
