French Bakery Bin

I found this three-tiered stand last weekend at the flea market.  It was a Kendall Jackson display piece but it was in pretty rough shape.

 My husband painted it red for me and then I lettered it using a bakery sign I had seen on Pinterest for inspiration.
 I used a laurel wreath stencil that I recently acquired and instead of using it as a wreath, I basically used it as a parenthesis around the name of my make believe bakery.
 I used the same design on the top bin of the stand to add a little extra detail.
 Here is the stand as I found it.
 And here it is after it's recreation.  Thanks for your visits and your comments.  They are always appreciated.
