A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a neighbors garage sale and brought home this beauty of a box! Vintage, perfect coloring, and wood in good condition. Then I grabbed my chalkpaint colored mason jars (I made a dozen for a bridal shower back in February), filled them with purple wildflowers and viola! A spring centerpiece on our dining room table!
Vintage crates like the one pictured above usually go for between $20-$60 depending on dealer, size, condition. My neighbor gave me a generous price of $20; you can be sure I will be going back to her post haste :).
