making a vintage crate with transferred image

A couple of posts ago,
I explained how to transfer images onto wood with contact paper,
which I used to make my vintage French wine tray.

Well after the tutorial, I was left with a nice transfer image (from the Graphics Fairy)
on a piece of 1 X 6.
So I made a box:

I used more 1 X 6 for the other sides,
and a piece of 1/4 " plywood for the bottom.

I reinforced the corners by using some pieces of 1 X 2,
I wanted to make the box like Sandra of Sawdust and Paper Scraps
but I do not have a table saw.

Here is how I used it:
to store soda cans!

I am pleased with how the view has improved!
Now I think I need to make a couple more to keep hiding unsightly goods...

Happy day!
