Crate Coffee Table Reveal!!

Hey guys!  I got it all finished and wanted to share some pictures real quick…

After it dried I attached the casters using wood screws and washers.

Then, I flipped her over and I was ready to go!

What do you think??

I love it!  And so did my cousin 🙂  He actually came by this morning and picked it up!  I built another one to replace it this afternoon.

Hope you like it Justin 🙂

Thanks so much for stopping by!! You can find my info on the build portion HERE.  Have a super weekend!!

    Visiting from Met Monday. Love this! Had I not just finished a media cabinet for my son, I would have made this instead. The wheels are awesome!

    How creative. I bet Justin will love it.
    Dropping by from Met Monday. I hope you’ll come see the safari nursery.

    I wish you lived near me because I’d be sticking one in my truck too! Yours is better than any I’ve seen. I love the simplicity of it and the color! LOVE it!

    I love that! I may have to give something like that a try in my living room… How is the spray paint holding up on the wheels?

    Great job! I plan on making one! Can you tell me the diameter size of the wheels you used? I have gone to the Northern Tool website and would like to order based on the size you used. Thanks and keep the great idea coming!

      These are the 5″ wheels and were $12.99 a piece. Hope this helps!!

    Love it! What color stain did you use on the table? I just have to know! 🙂

    • Shanty2Chic on June 18, 2011 at 11:01 pm

    Love this! I love the dark stained color. And the wheels!!! Where in the world did you find those? I just recently built a similar coffee table out of old fence pickets, but I couldn’t find any really great wheels. I had to use ones from Lowe’s. I’d much rather have ones like yours! Here’s mine: http://blog.addicted2decorating.com/2011/06/diy-factory-cart-style-coffee-table.html

    • Shanty2Chic on June 18, 2011 at 11:04 pm

      Hey Kristi! I got mine at Northern Tool. The ones at Lowe’s were too small! You can order online from them too. I’m going to check yours out now!
      Thanks again!

    Oh, it’s wonderful!
