I love boxes!!

Happy Memorial Day to you all!  Thank you to all you BRAVE men & women who have risked their lives for us!  Hope you had a great long weekend.  It was awesome weather for the beach!  We spent a few days enjoying some quality family time along Lake Michigan.  I just LOVE Lake Michigan!!!  We enjoyed some good laughs, little bike riding, swimming, and of course some good 'ole ice cream.  It went by way too fast.  Anyways, I have a small project to share with you this evening.  My dad gave me this old vintage box.  It was really dirty and the wood was broken off in a few places.  I knew it had potential...and I just love old boxes right now.  Not sure why...but I just do.
I gave this little box a quick little clean-up.  I then gave it a coat of Kilz primer and then a few coats of white latex paint.  After the coats had dried, I used my cricut to create a number stencil.  I'm kinda partial to the number three....  I then decided that it needed a little distressing.  Here she is .....what do you think?

Wouldn't it be cute to plant some flowers in here?
Have a great evening and if you're reading....thanks!
