    Sure would be pretty would a bunch of succulents oozing out of it...of course it would be ruined forever, but pretty. Nice piece.

    Old crates are really pretty when repurposed in this way but their value as a true antique piece is ruined completely because of the moisture and soil.

    Quite the gift Matt and I really like it. I wouldn't clean it or touch it at all.

    I just pulled those pics off of the computer to save time. I have no clue who took them or where they may be. Posted solely for the purpose of clarification.
