Another Crate Transformation

So this will be crate number 5 for me.  

Obsessed?

Maybe.


 I just can't help myself when I see one at the thrift store! 


I went a little further than just painting the crate.  I used some paper for the back and also added a lace flower.  Which by the way is my favorite part.  


Here is a close up of the flower:

I am having troubles though.

Not sure which way I like it best. 


Vertical

 or..

Horizontal



And, my other problem is what to put in it! I don't want it to look cluttered.  Especially since it has the paper in the background.  

Would love any feedback! 


Linking up to these parties!

Cute. What about some kind of empty vase or little vases depending on which way you have it. I think the glass with the paper behind would look cool.

I vote verticall!
And you can put a bottle of vine (empty or not).
I also agree with Tyrelle.

Oh I love it! Fabulous! I think it depends on what you're pairing it with as to weather or not to have it tall or short. OH so beautiful!
