I am always so excited when I can repurpose something I already own into something useful that I need……and that happened to be my antique 10 gallon Medalta crock.I asked L if he had any wood that I could use for a top and lucky for me he did. As I mentioned before, he doesn’t let me use any of the fun tools so he cut and sanded a piece of wood for the top. LOL that’s ok, it just makes him part of the process.
I loved the grain of the wood but didn’t love the color of the wood so I got out somecraft paint and starting mixing my own. I used 3 parts white, one part black and one part water to get this lovely gray. I used a sponge to apply, waited about 30 seconds then wiped it off with a lint free rag. I did this a few times until I got the color I wanted.
Once it was dry, I popped the top on the crock, styled it and put it to use. I’m thinking it might need a more antique look but that’s a project for another day.
I can’t wait to style this for Christmas. I love the rustic look of it – I think it is indeed A Wandaful Thing!!!
