Prized vintage crate...

I've just packaged this off to my giveaway winner Loo from Jumbles and Pom Poms
She chose the text and liked the font. It's a little bit like the Coca Cola font. I lightened the wood slightly. I didn't have my usual 'Skimming Stone' so I mixed one part Wilkos 'Cosy Grey' and one part 'Coastline' and it worked fine. Very similar to 'Skimming Stone'.

The lettering is more of a contrast if the wood is slightly lighter.



After I did the wording I sanded it very lightly for an authentic 'old crate' look.







I hope she's pleased with it. It's on it's way Loo.

KRISTA W I haven't heard from you! Please email me about your prize.


I'm typing this in my dressing gown without my glasses on so it's probably full of mistakes.
Sports day today. Ugh! My daughter is running. That means I have to run too. Obviously I'll have to swing it so I come last. It won't be too hard. I gave it my all last year and came second to last!

  2. Hi Emma Kate, it looks utterly amazing. I love it and I'm sure Izzy will love it too. Thank you so much.

    Oh poor you having to run. I don't do running. Luckily when they get to secondary school you don't have to join in (not that I ever did anyway). Hope it wasn't too hellish. xx
