Cherry Crate

I wanted to get a quick post up before I turn my computer over to a techie for a thorough diagnostics work up.  After last week's problems, I want to make sure everything is working fine.

I'm getting ready for the French Flea Market and churning out as many projects as I can.  This is one that I just finished.
It's an old fruit crate that had the word cherries stenciled on it, but I didn't like the way it looked.  So I added my images and the word cherries once again.  The graphic was an image I found on line.  It's from an old Catherine Klein image.  The colors were vibrant and that's the look I was going for.  

It's a great crate for just about anything or it could be used as a deep tray as well.  I did both sides so it could also be used as a centerpiece on a table.
Thanks for stopping by.

I love the color combination on this. The red looks so striking. I can't ever decide what to put on a crate.
