Chalkboard Crate Planters

I made 3 crates using Ana Whites Chalkboard Produce Crate plan. It was my first woodworking project, was totally doable, and has created a monster. The middle crate in the photos was the first one, and I added extra 1x3s on the sides because I thought I didn't want the gaps between the side boards. Changed my mind for the second 2. I wanted a chippy finish so I stained with glaze and burnt umber by Golden, followed by a topcoat of dry brushed Titan Buff. I sealed with CeCe Caldwell Aging Wax.
