DIY Crate for a Christmas tree

This year when we pulled out the Christmas tree my wonderful
husband said, "hey honey, I can make a crate for the tree to sit in".
I loved the idea.

So he went to work using some lumber that was left over from other
projects.  You could easily take a pallet apart and use that too.
After he built it.  I sanded it down. 
Then applied a cream colored semi gloss paint.  I applied 3 coats.
After it dried, I sanded it to give it the distress look.
I could of left it like that but the wood looked to new and fresh.
So, I took some dark stain and applied it using old rag.  I just wiped it 
on the distressed part.



I love the way it turned out.
