Cruddy Old Box to Rustic Fall Tray

Sometimes the homeliest old things can be transformed, like Cinderella, into something attractive, not to mention functional.
I found a cruddy, old box, abandoned under a display table at a garage sale and saw some potential.
Would you have noticed this old thing? I liked its height and length and thought it could be prettied up and used as a fall centerpiece.
I also like the little handles on the side that would make for easier lifting and moving.
Get details and stenciling tips at the original blog post below. And don't forget to take a second look at garage sales and thrift stores for those "ugly step-sister" pieces that others leave behind.
