Create a Centerpiece For All Seasons


When I spotted this old wooden crate stuck away and nearly forgotten, I decided that I could find a new use for it — and create something unique for our house.

After wiping off the dust, I rubbed on a coat of clear satin Minwax® Wipe-On Poly. It sealed the wood, made minor scuff marks and scratches disappear, and gave the old crate a satin rather than gloss appearance that preserved its antique look.

I then took a piece of inexpensive florist’s foam, cut it to fit the crate, and then slipped it in.

I now have a unique centerpiece that I can easily change with the seasons simply by swapping out these artificial flowers with whatever ones match the month.

Until next time,

Thanks for stopping by!
