Stained Harvest Crate

Today is the first official day of Fall. That is nature's way of saying that I can put my sandals away and get my boots out.  Since Fall is here, I can also now buy all the pretty gourds and squash that I want. My front step is just asking to be all tricked out for the Fall.

Last year I just stacked them around my front step. This year I wanted something different.

I wanted a crate. But not just any crate. I wanted a Harvest Crate.

Good news is you can now buy unfinished plain old crates at almost any craft store. The bad news is that in all their new and shiny glory they don't look very old and harvesty.

We can fix that though. All we need is a little bit of stain. 

I found this spray paint stain. Guys, it is GLORIOUS. Glorious I tell you.

You just spray it on. I sprayed on two coats.

Then you wipe it off. You spray and wipe to get the look you want. Less coverage or more coverage. You decide.

Once the stain has dried, you can stencil it. I cut my stencil out of vinyl.

I painted a light and rough coat of white paint. I did a light coat because I want it to look weathered.

Remove the stencil while the paint is still wet. Let the paint dry.

Now it can be filled with all kind of gourds and set on your front porch.

I pretty much love it. Now all I have to do is add a few more touches to complete my Fall front porch.

Oh I am so happy it is Fall. This is my favorite time of year.

Do I get some sort of prize for guessing the right word the other day? It looks great, oh if only I had a place to put one of those. Awesome job.
