WOODEN TOTES

FOR SALE-THIS FARMHOUSE TOTE-$45.00

This wooden tote is so handy to have.  It started out as just a plain wooden tote.  Blonde wood, no colour, stain, or stencil.  When I wanted to attempt a different project I decided to try and do a tote of which I was seeing a lot of in the different blogs.  Not wanting to build it from scratch I purchased one at a local thrift shop.  But as you know it is never that simple.  When I started out I wanted to paint it, dry brush and polycrylic it.  I NEVER AND I MEAN NEVER end up with what I started out with in my mind.  After sanding it I was thinking I wanted a different look.  Having a lot of painted furniture and decor I decided to just have a plain stained wooden tote

After sanding it, I applied 2 coats of Minwax special walnut stain, So easy to apply, when all was dry I applied my favourite stencil styles.  After the stencil dried I applied about 3-4 coats of Mineral Fusion Top Coat for added durability.

FOR SALE                                                                    FOR SALE

$45.00                                                                             $35.00

The little tote with the large one was created the same way but a totally different stencil was applied.  They look really good separately or together. Right now the larger one is filled with books.  The little one has candles in it.  I had just seen a good idea.  We went for lunch and the server placed one on our table with all the condiments in it; Looked great. One idea I will be trying along with placing cutlery and napkins in one
