"Our Home" Candle Holder Wood Box (Wood You Like To Craft Entry)

This month's Wood You Like To Craft is hosted over at Crafty Sisters.

The project was to do a wood tool box style thingy.
I got lucky.

I've had something similar from a thrift store needing redone. 
This was the perfect motivation to finish up a project!

Here's mine:

But here's how it looked like to start:

I removed the hinged lid, and plan to use that for another project down the road.

I then gave it several coats of antique white acrylic paint, and then a coat of white spray paint.

I then mixed together some acrylic paint to make the perfect grey/blue and stenciled them onto the front.
(p.s. totally addicted to stencils right now)

I then filled it with three smoke blue grey bowls (they were supposed to be cereal bowls from Ikea) and then I put stones in the bottom.

I tried it inside too, but I think it looks best on the front porch!

 Okay, I'm off to link it up to:

wood you like to craft?

You still have a week if you want to be inspired and do one yourself!!
Here's the hostesses renditions:


To be honest, I wish I had the time (and vehicle as the hubs is off working) to get a better filler, but I love it for now and it's easy to change. 

Wish me luck!!
