On the hunt for some wine crates to use for storage and decor, Dee from Meatloaf and Melodrama thought to ask a few local merchants. These were just going to be thrown out by one of the big box stores, so they were more than happy to pass them along to Dee for free!
The boxes that she picked up were made of brand new wood. Hoping to give the boxes more of an aged patina, Dee went to work. Not wanting to deal with the overwhelming scent of wood stains, she made a faux stain by mixing paint she already had and watering it down a bit. She brushed this wash over the wood, creating just the vintage look she was going for.
