Take an old crate and bring it inside for an end table in your living room. Id re-paint it to go with the theme of the living room. Every time you redecorate, a quick and simple paint job brings the crate up to date with your living room!
DIY a Pallet End Table! Pallets are so versatile and so FREE! (at least here in Northern California). Is a "very good thing" for folks like us doing a reno/restoration on our 1956 "Cottage" - on a TIGHT Shoestring Budget!
