More from Matheau's birthday party. We have had this milk crate on the front porch for 10 years?? I thought it would be time to move it's location and use it for our smore/sticks-forks. I added the paint just livened it up a bit. I think it looks much more ready for a party, don't you? ;) I did the same with the large mason jar (that I used for the marshmallows). To get some what of a straight line, before painting, I ran a strip of thick tape around it so I could paint right up to the "line" and still keep the paint consistent.
