It didn't take me too long to decide on what I wanted to make with those crates.
One look at the new Ballard Design Magazine
and the search was over.
See the picture above?
It was just a wine crate
With it's chippy paint
in that perfect shade of blue gray.
I made sure to use these in the project.
Now this is not the correct way to join wood together.
Let's face it...
I'm always looking for the easy way.
How about you?
I'm going with it..
Look's crazy I know..
hang in there..
It's just perfect!
I love this old wood!
It was not easy to paint on
so worth it!
I'm still picking out splinters..hehe
Here are two reasons
why I love this old wood so much.
The old nails holes
this old blue paint.
Sorry for all of the pictures..
but ...I could not resist
Here is a peek at the Ballard's Sign
Thank you Ballard
I love your style!
Now for the moment
you have been waiting for.

ps.. just to answer a few questions
I painted free hand because the wood was so rough.
I have no idea what the sign say's but I would love to know.
The metal braces came from Wal Mart.
