Project Instructions

Step 1
Tape 1" off the top of crate around the edge and paint Apple Red on the inside. Allow to dry.
 

Step 2
Use a bowl that will fit inside the Apple Red rectangle. Trace onto a piece of poster board. Cut out to use as a template.
 

Step 3
Place the poster board with the circle cutout on top of the crate. Place the circle stencil on top, and stencil the circles with Wicker White. Allow to dry.
 

Step 4
Paint the slats on the sides with Wicker White, Fresh Foliage, Aqua and Apple Red.
 

Step 5
Tape off a rectangle on each drawer for words. Stencil each drawer with a different pattern, starting with the top, using Fresh Foliage, then Licorice, and stencil the last with Aqua. Allow to dry.
 

Step 6
Remove the tape from the rectangles and paint the top rectangle with Aqua, the next with Wicker White and the last with Apple Red. Stencil the words, music, pics (pictures?) and notes in the rectangles.

Tips

To add words, trace the letters onto a piece of paper first to check size and spacing.
