PRIMITIVE GATHERING



I have been gathering a few things together for a spring show. I love to paint and repurpose vintage finds. I got these ammo crates a long time ago and have been painting them up. they can be used as a trunk or wall cabinet. I like how the red one turned out. I have painted them in olive green, red and white. The unpainted on the right is my last one. I was thinking about a colonial blue. Any suggestions as to what color I should paint it?

Hey Denise: love your finds. I have one of those large tin buckets too...can't for the life of me remember what they call them?...a roasting pot?? any color would look good all primmed up and stained over top. ps we used to strap my brothers race car tracks onto our feet as kids and "ski" down our gigantic hills here in Buffalo, NY country!!:) patti
