DIY Vintage Crate With Planted Flowers

It’s not every day that you can find a free wooden crate like the beautiful wine crates  I got a few months ago, but it’s easy enough to buy one for just a few dollars and make it look like it’s a vintage one! They sell plain ones, in various sizes, at the craft and home improvement stores. I bought a small one made of pine, that’s just about 10 x 5 x 12 inches.

I applied a coat of stain on its exterior and interior.
