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.But 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!
I purchased the coop, casters, and some little clear self-adhesive rubber squares (to protect the glass from the coop). I had a local glass company cut a piece of glass for the table top. My husband was actually the one who affixed the casters to the coop with screws, not because I wasn’t capable but because I was working on another project.This was super simple and will make a great conversation piece in my sister’s sunroom!
