Needed a place to store my firewood in the shop, think I found a plan on popular woodworking. Made of pine, and painted with milk paint.

It’s very nice and almost looks original.

My wife wanted one of those and she told me not to finish it. So I built her one and took it home to her and thought I would find it sitting next to our wood stove when she painted it. Went out on the front deck one evening and there it sat painted purple, with pansies in the box and pot plants sitting on the top of it.

You did a great job on it. They’re a lot of fun to build and sell like hotcakes here unfinished.

Thanks, that is a funny story, I am sorry she painted it purple – shaker craftsman are probably rolling in their graves:)

Beautiful trunk, nicely coloured. I made one project with similar colour too.
