Apple Crate

 Hand painted this lil' guy the other day.  I like it.  I chose "Fred's Apples" because I call my husband Fred and it seemed fitting.  No, his name's not Fred but that's OK.  Our family and friends will understand.  My favorite part are the branches, they're along the sides too.

This is what my daughter uses it for.  It'd only been on the floor for a minute before she climbed in.

Got the crate from Michaels for $10.  All the paints were leftover from my sign projects.  The stain had to be purchased but I will certainly be using it again.  Maybe to make another of these babies (the crate, not the kid.  Obviously I can't make a child out of a crate- silly).
