Wooden Crate Transformation

Hope you all had a great weekend!  I had a fun weekend, but it was way too short.  I really could have used one more day to relax! 

 I spent my weekend crafting.  

I made some really great projects...

and a couple of not so successful ones.  I won't discuss those ones.  :)

Over the weekend, I went to our local goodwill store and found a small wooden crate.

Here is the before.

Here is the after.  

I LOVE it! 

I painted it green, and then used some wood stain to distress it.  

I also made these eggs over the weekend as well.  I got my inspiration from HERE.

LOVE how they turned out.

I will be posting the tutorial for the eggs later this week!

Wow, the crate and eggs look great! I love those eggs, anything with sheet music is on my radar. :) Paint is my favorite thing, you can just transform something so so to something so wonderful!
