Looks like a champagne crate! Paint the lettering + let a little spray get on the sides to give it the crate effect

Gorgeous Dresser in Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint in Farmhouse White - Embracing Change

This piece had the most horrendous black crackle paint job on it when I found it. I usually don't buy painted pieces because I HATE stripping but I knew there was a gem under there. I had to strip it 3 times to start to get the gunk off and this red undercoat just wasn't moving...but I liked it. I got all the black off preserving whatever red I could, clean it off and put a thin coat of dark stain on top. I LOVE the result, and even more, I love that this is so different than my normal look.
