Old Crate, Vintage Plate

So this was an exciting day.  My "school dad buddy" had some furniture that he wanted out of his mom's garage so he could move his jazz in there.  Come and get it, he tells me!  His sweet darling mother parted with some beautiful pieces and I love them in my home!  When I was about to leave, I saw a trailer full of "trash" and I spotted this old crate perched on top.  
The crate??  Do you want that crate??

NO.  It's going to the dump.  Of course I added it to my truck!  It was in pretty rough shape and I actually questioned why I grabbed it after I got home....

But with Tim's awesome new battery powered nail gun, I replaced some of the loose boards on the bottom, gave it a dry brushing of DIY chalk paint, and it was good to go!!

I added this old Michigan License plate from 1979 to the front by looping some jute rope through the holes and tying it in the back.  I picked up some awesome plates at a garage sale once for just $1!
