Chic Chicken Coop Table

I came across this old chicken coop at an antique store/junk shop.  I immediately knew I wanted to turn it into a coffee table.  My husband was okay with this, as long as it didn’t go in our house.  He thinks we have enough (maybe too much) furniture.Chic Chicken Coop Table 1But I could not stop thinking about.  So, my back-up plan turned out to be even better.  My sister and her husband both work in the poultry industry AND they just bought a new house.  Instant (and very appropriate) housewarming gift!Chic Chicken Coop Table 3
