I did a light sanding to get a smooth surface. Here’s a closeup on our favorite Canadian wine 😉
Paint and varnish
I painted the inside without touching the border. I didn’t use a primer (no time for that!!) but did two coats of paint and it was enough. For the outside, I used a clear varnish and also did two coats with light sanding between them.
Drill holes in the top corners of the wine crates
With a screw, we tested the wall where we wanted to install the crate to see if there was wood behind.
No luck for us, we had to use wall anchors.
It is pretty hard to take pictures of something in front of a window, but I’m really happy with the look of it in real life!
These three statues were made in a workshop with the kids a couple of years ago, I really love them there!!
This week, I also upholstered a square stool for my craft room
