I decided to customize it using a stencil I made with my Cricut and paint from Deco Art. Since I am still learning how to use my machine, I chose a simple diamond shape design and printed it on vinyl so I could stick it on the wood and paint around it. I actually printed out the word "Tools" as well and intended on stenciling it on, but ripped the vinyl in the process of weeding it.(#newbiefail)
I placed the vinyl diamond shapes on the crate and then applied two coats of paint, letting it dry in between. I used Frosted Glass by Art Deco, which is a lovely grayish, teal.
Once the paint was mostly dry, I removed the vinyl stencils. You can see it seeped under a little and did not leave a clean edge on two of the shapes. I used my dremmel tool to sand the paint off, but managed to gouge the wood a little, but after using a sanding block, you can hardly tell!
Even though it is not perfect, I wanted to show you the possibilities using the Cricut. I now have a cute and customized crate to hold my Cricut tools.
