Old Crate Side with Horse Image

Here's what I made the other day with some scraps. It's supposed to look like the side of an old crate.

I used three pine boards for the base and two thinner ones for the side slats.  The side slats are nailed on with tacks.  I purposely did not predrill, and that created some cracks where the tacks went in.

The graphic came from The Graphics Fairy where Karen shares hundreds of free images.  It had a white background on which I dabbed on some rusty water (steel wool and vinegar) with a paint brush. The image was cut where the boards meet and then put on with Mod Podge glue.

I drilled two holes in the top for my twisted twine hanger which I showed how to make in a  previous post here
