Upcycled Wooden Plant Trays for the Garden

By Angela @daisyangel1
My sewing room is not the only place that has been furnished with upcycled items of late. My garden has also received the same treatment. Well a few wooden plant trays, not the whole garden. It gave my sister, niece and I the chance to get crafty together. To create our own personalised wooded garden trays.

So with a left over tin of paint, a few brightly color match pots, paint brushes and my nieces stencils we set to work - indoors. That British weather strikes again! Just as well there is plenty of room on the kitchen table. 

No need to paint a coat of primer on these boxes, rustic is good. So straight on with a coat of paint which was then left it dry. Then using a pencil and stencil we all mark on our chosen words. We all also added our favorite extra stencil of an insect or fruit. I could not resist a gardening hashtag. Using a thin paint brush we all, with a steady hand, carefully painted over our writing. I think my niece did a fantastic job painting her strawberries and snail.
