I don't even know where I acquired this apple crate--I have had it for quite a long time with wood scraps in it. I was looking at it one day and decided it needed to be rescued so that what was left of the label could be saved. I started by decoupaging the label, it was very fragile.
The label was on the box upside down to start, which was perfect for my project.
I added some 2x4 legs and some wax,
that was all it took to make this rotten apple shine.
