12 Days of Christmas--Day 7

On the seventh day of Christmas Beyond the Picket Fence gave to me, a little crate that is sweet like candy.
Now lest you think I have started dovetailing my boxes, I have not.  This was rescued from the high school shop class bonfire pile (the rejected projects get saved for a bonfire).  Unfortunately, they were not able to have their usual homecoming bonfire because of a burn ban.  Luckily for me, I was able to rescue a few things, three of which were boxes that the kids had practiced dovetails on.  These "boxes" were just four sides, no top or bottom to them.  I used pallet wood to make a crate bottom.
I came up with this fun company name and tagline on my own and hand painted it on the box, after designing and printing it.  I rubbed chalk on the back of the paper to transfer it on the red paint.
I added my usual belt handles
to complete this fun box.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
