I found this old Southern Comfort crate and loved it.  And, I knew my hubby would like it too so he would be in full support of this junking trip!
I decided to turn it into a unique end table.  It was a real easy project.  All I had to do was paint the legs and then screw them in!  So easy.

I had the day to myself today and spent 10+ hours doing some DIY projects.  Needless to say, I was one happy chica!  This table was one of many projects.  I have had the crate for awhile, I just needed the time to put it all together.  I like funky tables that strike up a conversation.  It will be a fun surprise for my hubby when he gets home.   He will definitely pull up a chair for a little Southern Comfort!

When you make a table like this you KNOW your husbands going to love it. Your table came out very cool.
