Great Crate

Crates, Baskets, Boxes. I love anything to do with organization. Doesn't mean I'm organized, just love it.
I have had this crate for a couple years and haven't done a thing with it. It was painted black when I bought it. Which by the way, got at Goodwill for $2.


I didn't don't know what to use it for, suggestions? I currently have my magazines in it.

One day I grabbed a paint brush and some old yellow paint. Old, as in, had to scrape 2" of hardened paint off the top to get to the wet stuff underneath. The lid was obviously not on tight for the last couple years.
I dry brushed it. I am not sure if that is a real term or not but basically, I put a little bit of paint on the brush and I spread it on the crate as much as possible. If that makes any sense?
Here are pictures. Its a rough look, not fully painted. dry brushed.

Do you read my blog ever? I haven't posted in a long time - but dry brushing was so similar to my 'dry painting'! Love this box.

Don't let her fool you, she is Mrs. Organized! Who do you think kept me in line all these years and with packing my suitcase and groceries? I gave her a break bc I thought she was doing too much organizing for me and ordered online! lol
