I think they came out great...

My Antique Finds ~~



~~ I found these great prim antiques at a estate sale today for Free..yup free - can't go wrong there..I'm thinking of painting the box slightly with off white just enough to cover but let the wood still show thru and stencil on " Primitive" or Antique in dark red on one side......The ladder is the kind that my grandfather made - the kind that you will be scare to use cause it's not too steady...I got this sitting on my farmers porch - I was thinking of wrapping a american flag over it or around it....I think I will just leave as is and not paint it..I would love to hear what all my prim friends would do??
