Flower Box

Hello and happy Monday!  Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying summer so far.  Time is going so fast right now and I so wish I could just pause it for awhile.  I love summer and it just seems to go so FAST....

I picked up this wood box at a garage sale.  I have said it many times before....but I just love boxes..any size or shape.
 I gave it a coat of Kilz primer and then a couple coats of aqua paint.  I used my cricut machine to cut out a stencil.  I chose the word love and decided to stencil it in white.
Have a great day....and if you're reading ThAnKs!!!

  1. I love what you've done with the box. Boxes do seem to hold some much great potential. You know, I was thinking that maybe some of the drawers I've found lately could also be made into some cool flower boxes and attached to my patio wall. This solidifies my thoughts on that. Thanks for sharing. I found this post through Lines Across. I'm now following too. Hope you'll stop over and visit at Quirky Vistas.
