Stenciled Wooden Toolbox for the Fall

 I couldn't wait to try this new fall orchard stencil from Old Sign Stencils. On this project I used several of my favorite stencils and it couldn't have been easier!

This project was a cinch and took no time to turn a plain wooden toolbox into a fun project for fall.

I used an old crate I found at a garage sale and at one point I had used it in my office as a desk organizer

I repainted the outside of the crate with Fusion Mineral Paint in Black Coal.

I left the inside with a white-washed finish. 

I stenciled the You Pick Orchard stencil from Old Sign Stencils with white craft paint. 

On one side I stenciled an apple with red craft paint from the Fall Produce Graphics stencil.

On the opposite side of the crate I stenciled the pear from the same stencil collection.

I sanded the edges of the crate to distress it then sprayed a quick coat of spray sealer for protection

The whole project took no time to complete and looks amazing! 

Check out the fun apple crate I made several years ago using paint sticks. 

If you haven't tried Old Sign Stencils yet, they are easy to use and the heavy quality of the stencil will last for years.
