    I have one of these I paid 10 bucks for at a flea market. I hung it from the ceiling with the bottom as the top and made a great pot rack out of it.. The door is able to open to store more things. I love it. Wish I could find a few more.

    Laura, I had one on my patio and everyone loved it. Now I am making one into a coffee table, but a little 'fancier'. I have a lot of seashells and rocks I want to display- so I am putting an old wooden framed window shadow box on top! Can't wait!

    I would not have a used chicken crate in the house or around children, even if it's been cleaned. Especially if you have an autoimmune family member or visitor. Chicken poop is notorious for Histoplasmosis. Even if you aren't in an area that could be

    I bought a turkey crate (just a bit taller than chicken crates) and used it as a coffee table for YEARS. I loved having the display space inside the crate and changed out the decor frequently. It was a lot of fun and definitely a conversation starter.
