Grab a crate from your local craft store. I purchased one of the smaller crates for the look that I was going for. I used my 50% coupon and the crate was $5 bucks! I stained the crate using Minwax Jacobean Stain.
While the stain dries, you can go ahead and make the chalkboard sign. I found this little chalkboard already made at Hobby Lobby but you could paint any hanging flat surface with chalkboard paint and have a cute sign.
You can use any chain you want but I picked gold because a) I’m obsessed with gold and b) I’m obsessed with gold 🙂
You can use this crate to decorate your porch or your dining room table! I used it in my hutch and it fits there perfectly. Fill in with some pretty fruit and bales of hay and you are set!
