Wooden Crate and Milk Bottles

Time for another entry on the Trash 2 Treasure challenge on the Sassy Sites blog. This time I'm showing off an old wooden crate and some vintage milk bottles that were destined for the city dump when my husband got a hold of them. One of his customers was going to throw them out! So he gladly brought them home for me. I put my creative touches on them and now they sit in my kitchen.

Wooden Crate MIlk Bottles Trash to Treasure

I didn't want to do too much to these treasures, because I love the vintage look of them already. But I did want to do something to jazz them up a bit. So I took some fabric I had with sunflowers on it and cut out various sunflowers. Then I decoupaged them onto the wooden crate, and also added one to each milk bottle. And then I just added a bit of stippling using acrylic paints to add some yellow and green around the flowers on the crate, just for a little pop of color.

I love how these turned out. They are a fun conversation piece, and they fit right in with the country prim and vintage feel of my kitchen.
