Goodwill Crate ASCP Makeover

I picked up this little wood crate for $2.99 at Goodwill last week.  It was just a plain ol' run-of-the-mill boring wood crate.  I decided to jazz it up a bit with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.
I gave it two coats and then sanded down the edges for a shabby look.
I used this great French banner from The Graphics Fairy on both sides.  I added the "le jardin" using the French Script font.  I think the hardest part was cutting around the edges of the banner and lining up the wording with the banner image.  Took me 3-4 tries to get it perfectly centered.
I wasn't in the mood to Mod Podge it on, so I just printed everything out on white label paper.  All I had to do was peel and stick - definitely more my speed on these hot days.

For now she's displaying a mason jar - at least until I decide what I want to store in there.
