Another quick project #3

Here is another quick project I've seen around.  I used old Michigan license plates for the front and back (from the bi-centennial 1976).  This will be used as a plantar but can be used for almost anything.  The one's I've seen were painted all over--I like the red/white/blue look for the upcoming holiday.  I will eventually paint the box white but not the plate.  JH put this together with scrap wood.

Ahhhh! I just remembered I have some vintage license plates out at our cabin that I've not figured out a project for them yet. I may be onto something now. Thanks for the inspiration.
